Day 2:
Train from Tenri Nara Station to central Kyoto (day trip)

Day 3:
Train from Tenri Nara Station to CaminoRo Guesthouse, Mikuni Station Osaka

Stay and travel around in Osaka

Day 6:

Based on our plan above, can you please advise which is the best train pass to buy apart from JR Pass. Would it be the Kansai Pass or the Kintetsu Pass?

Can you also please advise us cost estimate for budgeting purposes? Thank you.
