About JR Pass

Hi I am flying to Osaka (Kansai) at October 2016 and staying at Humour New Resort Hotel Osaka. I will be there for 4 nights 5 days, and was wondering if It was worth buying a pass or just paying for the daily trips.
I would like to go to:

Day 1: Arrival from(Manila Philippines to Kansai Airport)
Day 2: Kaiyukan Aquairium Osaka
Day 3: Universal Studios 1
Day 4: Universal Studios 2
Day 5: Osaka Castle and Afternoon Departure (Kansai to Manila Philipinnes)

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Do i need to buy JR Pass and which pass i will buy JR West or JR Kansai ,,Please help if possible please give me the exact JR pass that i will need from Day 1 to Day 5. If you notice my Itinerary all in osaka and near each other.. PLease help

Thank you


Hello Maricor,

You will mostly stay within Osaka and I would stick to purchasing normal tickets here. Possible you could look at using an Amazing Osaka Pass for travel within the city.

A JR Pass is better suited for travel cross country.

Hope this helps,
