Hi Andrade,

We have an article about budgeting for a Tokyo trip:
The costs for Osaka and Kyoto will be similar.

If you’re spending your time in the Osaka and Kyoto area only, buy JR IC card at the airport when you arrive The local trains and subways are the best way to get around.

If you’re likely to travel greater distances, you might save money with a rail pass, here’s our article on the JR west passes (for that area of Japan)

Hope that helps!
