Help! Which discount tickets to get for traveling around Osaka?

Hi . My friend and I are going to Osaka on end-Sept. We are going to stay at Tennoji.

Below is our itinerary:
Day 1 Sept 23 Arrival from KIX at 3.50 pm
Day 2 Sept 24 USJ
Day 3 Sept 25 Tour around Osaka (shrines and Umeda area)
Day 4 Sept 26 Tour around Nara and Namba area at night
Day 5 Sept 27 Departure from KIX at 5.30 pm

Planning to take ICOCA+Haruka from KIX to Osaka. Since I’m planning to get 1-day Amazing Pass. Should I get One-day ticket Enjoy Eco Card and Osaka Visitors' Ticket for the remaning days? Or Kansai Thru Pass is more suitable for the rest of the trip?
Thank you!


Hi there,

Since you'll be traveling in the Kansai Area, travel expansive won't be that much in any event. If you buy the ICOCA package + an Osaka Amazing pass, then you'll pretty much be settled. You can use the ICOCA card for local travel and to Nara and the Osaka Amazing pass for sightseeing in Osaka itself.
