Hi,

pls advice which JR pass to purchase to suit our 10 days 9 nights Itinerary below.

Was thinking to purchase JR 5 days Kansai Wide Area Pass (activate from Day 3 -Day 7). How about the rest of the day? single trip of Haruka limited express train?

Day 1 - KIX airport --> Kyoto
Day 2 - Kyoto
Day 3 - Kyoto --> Kinosaki Onsen (JRKWP D1)
Day 4 - Kinosaki Onsen --> Osaka - based at Tennoji area (JRKWP D2)
Day 5 - Day trip trip to Kobe (JRKWP D3)
Day 6 - Day trip to Himeji (JRKWP D4)
Day 7 - Day trip to Nara --> Osaka castle (JRKWP D5)
Day 8 - USJ
Day 9 - Osaka
Day 10 - Osaka (Tennoji) --> KIX airport

thanks :D

Hi there,

Yes, that is what I would do as well. For the return to Kansai Airport, you can also use the JR Special Rapid to KIX. It is considered a local train and about half the price of the Haruka. Comfort is a bit less but travel time about the same.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for ur reply & advice :).

I am just worry about the unreserved seats on JR limited express trains. Any advice on this concern?

What is the faster way to go Shin Osaka from Tennoji station using this JR 5 days Kansai Wide Area Pass?

Thanks :)

Hi there,

I am just worry about the unreserved seats on JR limited express trains. Any advice on this concern? Come a bit early to the station, this way you can queue up for a non-reserved seat at the station platform.

Tennoji is within the Osaka city limit bounds and not very far, you could take any train going there and the time difference would be minimal.

Possible to board the Haruka limited express train from Tennoji station to Shin Osaka? Yes
