Advise Needed on Transportation


#1

Hi everyone! My name is Lee. My family and I (4 of us) will be visiting Kyoto, Nara and Osaka in November 2018.

My itineraries are :
Day 1 - Kansai Airport to Kyoto
Day 2 - explore Kyoto city
Day 3 - day trip to Amanohashidate and back to Kyoto
Day 4 - explore Kyoto city
Day 5 - travel from Kyoto to Nara
Day 6 - day trip to Matarai Valley from Nara
Day 7 - travel from Nara to Osaka
Day 8 - explore Osaka city
Day 9 - explore Minoo Park and Osaka city
Day 10 - from Osaka to Kansai Airport

As transportation is expensive in Japan, we need advice on what passes to buy to optimise on our spending as we are on a budget.

Thanking in advance for the help.
