Hi there,

I would use a 7 day JR Pass for travel from day 1 - day 7. Travel to Tokyo and Kyoto. This alone will pay for the JR Pass. The JR Pass is also valid on the local JR network in Tokyo, covering much of the metropolis.

After day 7, most travel is all relatively local within the Kansai area and normal tickets will get you around from there. You can also buy an IC card to travel around.

Hope this helps,
