Hi Lacp!

Staying in Osaka while you are in the Kansai area and travelling to Kyoto daily is a very good idea and many travellers choose this option. You should expect the rail trip to take around 20-30mins each way using the JR Special Rapid Service which is free if you have a JR Pass.

Also, staying in Osaka I think you have a more varied choice of eating and nightlife options so there are other benefits to doing things this way round too.

Here's a map showing the lines between Tokyo and Osaka for you.

I hope this helps!
