Osaka Kyoto Nara Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi, I will be visiting Japan this month and will be arriving and departing from Kansai International Airport (KIX). Our itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 (arrival at night):
Check in at hotel (Namba area).

Day 2: (day trip to Nara)
Nara Deer Park, Isuien Garden, Todai-ji

Day 3: (day trip to Kyoto)
Arashimaya, Tenryu-ji Temple, Kinkaku-ji Castle, Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine

Day 4: (Osaka)
Osaka Castle, Giant Ferris Wheel, Umeda Sky Bldg

Day 5: (Osaka)
Kuromon Ichiba Shopping Street, Shinsaibashisuji Shopping Area

I would like to ask for your inputs on which train should we take from Osaka-Nara and Kyoto? I have read online that there is a Kansai Thru Pass and a JR Line Pass. Which is more economical and convenient given our itinerary? Also, if you could suggest places where we can eat in each area since we want to do a lot of eating. We are not going to go around all the temples (explore inside) which is why our itinerary seems tight.

Looking forward to your inputs. Thanks!
