Did a bit of reading so I have some idea on suggested tickets to get, but I can’t help but want to confirm this with an actual post.
I’ve got 2 trips in Japan next year, from Feb 23-March 2 and March 16-April 2.
The 1st trip will just be in the Osaka-Kyoto area (with a side trip to Nara). Intercity travel will happen starting Feb 25-28 timeframe.
The 2nd trip will be Osaka-Kyoto-Tokyo, with around 5 days each city (longer stay in Tokyo).
Would I be right in the following decisions:
1st Trip - Get a JR West Pass/Kansai Area Pass.
2nd trip - not going for JR Passes, just going to get 1-way tickets for the Osaka-Kyoto and Kyoto-Tokyo legs.
Edit: Sorry, posted in the wrong sub-category, was meant to be posted in the Japan Travel section.
