6 Days in Kansai. 3 Days Osaka/3 Days Kyoto or 5 Days Osaka/1 Day Kyoto?

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling the first week of March to the Kansai region. I initially wanted to split my time; three days in Osaka and three days in Kyoto but a couple of things are concerning me:

1. Budget: I'm planning on taking $600US with me, that will include my travel (to and from airport and locally), admission (Osaka Castle, Aquarium, Universal studios), food and souvenirs.

2. Things to do: I enjoy being a lively place yet one that is steeped in history, I feel like Osaka has that glitz factor that I enjoy, but you can still get a good understanding of Japanese culture. Kyoto, while on the other hand is steeped in so much history but seems to be so sleepy compared to Osaka - I'm thinking of doing a day trip instead.

In a nutshell, is it worth dividing my trip up into half osaka/half kyoto, or can Kyoto just be a day trip. I do have my heart set on Universal studios.

I arrive on Thursday afternoon (my birthday :)) I plan to use that as a rest day and treat myself to dinner.

Friday: Osaka Castle, Aquarium, Observatory, explore Dotombori and Den Den Town (might do reverse so that I can see the skyline at sunset)

Saturday: Universal Studios

Sunday: Rest day/buy souvenirs

Monday/Tuesday: No plans (any suggestions in Kyoto?)

Wednesday: Leave at 10am from Kansai
