my wife and son will be travelling to Osaka and spending 8 nights ( 9 days) between Osaka/Nar/Kyoto
I am thinking of buying two 4 days western region pass for each of them activating one on arrival of Osaka and the 2nd on the 5th day. My question is that am I able to do that?
If not, can you please advise what I should do.
