icoca+haruka or kansai one pass?

Icoca+Haruka or Kansai One pass?

I will be coming from Hk from May 4-11. My itinerary as below.
Day 1 Kansai to Tennoji
Day 2-3 local tour
Day 3 from Tennoji to Kyoto
Day 4-6 drive, car return at Osaka
Day 7-8 travel within Osaka
Day 8 Osaka to kansai

I mainly use Icoca for the time in Osaka - day 1 upon arrival from Kansai to Tennoji , the trip from Tennoji to Kyoto , then the last two days in Osaka
So subway within Osaka and the Jr from Kansi, Tennoji to Kyoto then Osaka to Kansai.

My question is 1. Should i get haruka with Icoca one way or round trip? 2. Should I get Kansai one pass or Icoca?

Thanks a lot


Hi there,

You can also get both!

First buy the Kansai One Pass, this also is an ICOCA card.

So the ICOCA card when purchasing your Haruka Ticket and you'll get that discounted.
