Osaka & Tokyo trip

Dear Sir/Madam

Below are our trips

1st-4th day Bangkok to Osaka, travel in Osaka and Kyoto
5th-8th day Tokyo
9th day Tokyo to Bangkok (Narita airport)

  1. Do we need to buy JR pass?
  2. Any card or what kind of cards that are suit our trips?
  3. 1-day or 2-day card are useful for travel in Osaka and Kyoto? Or any suggestion?
  4. Travel in Tokyo? Which card is appropriate?

Thanks and Best regards


Hi there!

Since you are only travelling one way from Kyoto to Osaka + some local travel in and around Osaka the JRpass might not be the best value for your money. For your travel Around Osaka and Kyoto I would recommend the Kansai Area Pass. and for your trip from Osaka to Tokyo you could just buy the ticket locally or take a Night Bus if you really want to save money.

In Tokyo the best way to get around is the Tokyo Metro for sure! Consider buying some all day travel passes when you are there.

Hope it helps!
