    Hi there!

    I wondering which pass suit us the most as the itinerary below. I’m quite interested in Osaka Eco Card and Osaka Amazing Pass but I realised that our journey to Momofuku Ando need to take Hankyu Train. Is it included in both pass? Can we take Midosuji Line by using Osaka Eco Card? And also, can we use NAMBA ACCESS RAPI:T TICKET for a return trip from Kansai International Airport to Osaka and Osaka to Kansai International Airport? Look forward to your reply :)

    Day 1 – Visit Kyoto > Osaka

    Day 2 – Universal Studio Japan > Dotonbori

    Day 3 – Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Musuem > Osaka Castle > Shinseikai

    Day 4 – Namba > Kansai International Airport

    Hello Takeshi,

    -first time in Japan (30.3.-13.4.)
    -buying 14 days JRP
    -4 days Tokyo (Iwama, Fuji one day trips)
    -moving to Itoshima (sightseeing there& arround the seaside)
    -moving to Hiroshima
    -moving to Nara/Kyoto/Kobe or Osaka
    -back to Tokyo

    Is it too much for first timers, do you have any sugestions?
    Hope I am concise enough ;) ?

    Best regards from Slovenia,


    • Hi Matej,

      Are you going to Itoshima in Kyushu? It’s quite far from Tokyo. It takes 5.5 hours from Tokyo to Hakata by Shinkansen. And then takes another one hour to get there. You may drop by Hiroshima on the way to Itoshima and visit Nara, Kyoto and Osaka on the way back.

      I don’t think it’s too much for 2 weeks trip.

    Hi Takeshi

    Takeshi thank you for your prompt response and great information with links attached for me!
    I want to ask if you think this route would work smoothly or if you think it will be to difficult for us to do because we are just learning the trains:
    Tokyo -> Kawaguchiko
    Kawaguchiko -> Kyoto
    Kyoto -> Nagano
    Nagano -> Haneda airport

    Many thanks for your help!

    • Hi Geralyn,

      This will work. But when you go to Kyoto from Kawaguchiko, you have to take a bus to get Mishima. This segment is a bit difficult. Please refer the link for Fuji and Hakone that I gave you at previous reply.
