Hi, my husband and I will be traveling for 12 days in Kansai and Shikoku and would like advise on what travel passes to buy. Here is the attempted itinerary:

March 23, arrival at KIX airport, train to Takamatsu; base in Takamatsu for 3 nights with day trips to Naoshima and Kotohira-gu
March 26 trip from Takamatsu to Matsuyama, stay for 2 nights
March 28, trip from Matsuyama to Osaka, base for 6 nights, day trips to Himeji Castle, Mount Koa, Mount Yoshino, Kumano Nachi Taisha
April 3, trip to Osaka KIX airport for departure

Thank you,

Hi Carmer,

I could not really find a good pass that would help you make savings.

As such, my suggestion would be to just buy train tickets as you travel.

Kind regards,

Hi Daniel,
Thank you for your reply. Do you think a 14 day pass would be more expensive than what we need ?
