Miki to Kobe

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm going to follow my husband to Miki for work. However I'm going for sightseeing around kobe, osaka and kyoto.

1)What kind of transport that I can take from miki to other cities? 

2) there are few tourist pass for trains. Which is the best should I buy that covers the tourist attractions, trains with discount.

Hello there,

Of the cities you mentioned the closest city to Miki is Kobe. Miki is connected to Kobe by a private local railway line called "Kobe Electric Railway" or "Kobe Dentetsu" (sometimes it is also called "Shintetsu"). Most trains take at least an hour to get to Kobe. As this local rail line is operated by a private company it is not covered by any of the JR rail passes. Instead you can get a Kansai Thru Pass which covers many of the private railways, subways, and buses in this region. It also includes your local Kobe Electric Railway. From Kobe you can use other private railways (such as Hankyu or Hanshin) to get to Osaka, and you can use Hankyu or Keihan railways to get from Osaka to Kyoto. All of these railways are covered by the Kansai Thru Pass. You can find out more details here: http://www.surutto.com/tickets/kansai_thru_english.html

I hope that helps!

Best wishes,
