4 day trip osaka and kyoto

4 Day Trip Osaka and Kyoto


Please advice the appropriate JR pass that we should buy for our 4 day trip to Osaka and Kyoto. We will arrive at Kansai around 8pm on September 20 and our flight back to Manila is on September 24 around 8pm. Our base will be in Osaka - - we intend to go to Kyoto on our first 2 days but we will go back to Osaka at night. Can I buy a 4 day pass? Though I'm not sure if 4 days is counted on our first ride on the train from the airport then every 24 hours thereafter.




Hi Loren,

Osaka and Kyoto are close together and a one way ticket is only 560yen. Therefor I advise buying normal tickets for your trip.

A JR Pass would have been useful if you added a visit to Tokyo as well.

Hope this helps,
