KIX to Kyoto

Recommended Posts


I am flying to Kansai this weekend.

From Kansai airport to Kyoto station.  Staying near Kyoto station.  Spending 2 days in Kyoto.  Planning to visit Arashiyama, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Kiyomizudera.

Day 3 - taking train to Osaka,  staying near Namba station.  Spending 2 days in Osaka.  Planning to visit  Osaka Castle and Nara park.

Question:  What pass to buy and will be the best deal for family of 4?

Hi, my recommendation is as follows:

1. From KIX to kyoto, get Haruka + ICOCA, use ICOCA for trip to Fushimi Inari (if you take the train) and between Osaka to Nara. Use Haruka for the return trip to Osaka if it works

2. In Kyoto, use 2 day bus pass if you plan to visit several places. It is worth to get if you take more than 2 trips a day

3. From Osaka to Nara, use Kintestu train.
