So you suggest us to purchase JR pass kansai area or individual ticket?
please give us your best suggestion.

Hi Ryan,

Osaka is very conveniently located between Kyoto and Osaka, making travel locally very economic.
This is why I would recommend buying normal tickets as you travel because rail tickets simply don't pay of for such short distances.

What you could consider for travel locally in Osaka is the Osaka Unlimited Pass which allows for unlimited subway travel within the city and gives free entrance to many sightseeing spots as well.

I hope this helps you!
