Kyoto -Kanazawa-Takayama-Osaka

I fly into Kansai International in Dec, and will start my visit with Kyoto and end with Osaka. In between, I wish to do the Kanazawa and Takayama route, and hope to visit Nara as well. Nara can be after Kyoto or after Kanazawa/Takayama.

Which is the best route for travel? I have 2 young kids, so I would like convenient route.


Hi there,

I think going with the route Kyoto - Kanazawa - Takayama - Osaka works well.

You can use a direct train from Kyoto - Kanazawa the routes Kanazawa - Takayama and Takayam - Osaka have only 1-2 transfers.

Here is Kanazawa - Takayama and Takayama - Osaka,

Hope you find this useful,
