Kansai Thru Pass sample itineraries

There are lots of NON JR trains in Kansai. Most of them can be taken by Kansai Thru Pass.
There are lots of NON JR trains in Kansai. Most of them can be taken by Kansai Thru Pass.

If you go to Osaka, Kansai Thru Pass may be your choice. But as I explained about this pass on the post, How to use Kansai Thru Pass. Compare pass and single fare, we need to take a train many many times. And I compared single fare and the price of pass. But it may be complicated for some readers. Some of you may be overwhelmed. So I show you more detailed itineraries in this post. I hope you can understand this pass much easier.

*The information in this article is current at the time of writing.

*All fares and schedules are as of February 2013. But the price of Kansai Thru Pass was updated to new price on April 1, 2014.

Ride a train/bus for 2,000 yen worth or more in one day

The price of pass is 4,000 yen for 2 days and 5,200 yen for 3 days. So you have to ride a train or bus or getting discount at attraction for 2,000 yen (1,740 yen for 3 days pass) value or more. Otherwise you can never make a worth of the pass.
All following itineraries require 1800 yen total fare or more. So you can pick two or three itineraries to combine.

In all sample itineraries, departure time is around 9:00 am. Of course you can start earlier if you want. But some of attractions open around 10:00 am. Please check the hours for the attractions that you want to visit.

Himeji, Kobe and Tarumi

If you go to Himeji and Kobe in one day, this pass gives you a great deal.

Depart from Namaba : Namba 09:10 (Hanshin train) 09:30 Amagasaki 09:36 (Hanshin train) 10:27 Sanyo Tarumi (840 yen)
Depart from Umeda : Umeda 09:27 (Hanshin train) 10:27 (750 yen)

Visit Mitsui Outlet Park Marine Pia Kobe
You can skip this point. The reason why I put it in this itinerary is that the trip is too long if we go to Himeji directly by Hanshin and Sanyo railways. This is not Must-See spot for the tourist. But you can see the world longest suspension bridge, Akashi Ohashi bridge here. And you can shop and eat here. I think it is nice place to take a break. It is only 9 minutes away from the station by foot. If you skip this spot, you can spend more time at Kobe or Himeji.

Sanyo Tarumi 12:00 (Sanyo train) 12:39 Sanyo Himeji (740 yen)

Visit UNESCO World Heritage site Himeji Castle and have lunch break. You can get 20% off for Himeji Castle admission by Kansai Thru Pass.

Sanyo Himeji 15:04 (Sanyo train) 16:08 Sannomiya (Walk) Sannoiya Hanadokeimae 16:20 (Kobe subway) 16:24 (940 yen + 200 yen = 1140 yen)

Visit Kobe port area. You can enjoy Kobe port cruise if you want. You can get a discount for cruise and Kobe Port tower. You can have a dinner at Kobe before heading back to Osaka.

To Namba : Sannomiya 20:11 (Hanshin train) 20:34 Amagasaki 20:39 (Hanshin) 20:59 Namba (400 yen)
To Umeda : 20:11 (Hanshin train) 20:42 Umeda (310 yen)

Total fare is 3120 yen from/to Namba and 2940 yen from/to Umeda.

Kobe and Arima hot springs

Arima hot springs is one of most three famous hot springs and one of the three oldest hot springs. Actually it is most accessible hot springs from Osaka. You can stay there but I put this hot springs as day use in this trip.

From Umeda : Umeda 09:03 (Hanshin train) 09:36 Sannomiya 09:49 (Kobe subway and Hokushin Kyuko) 10:00 Tanigami 10:06 (Kobe railway train) 10:17 Arimaguchi 10:19 (Kobe railway train) 10:23 Arima Onsen (310 yen + 900 yen = 1210 yen)
From Namba : Namba 08:45 (Hanshin train) 09:02 Amagasaki 09:07 (Hanshin train) 09:32 Sannomiya 09:49 (Kobe subway and Hokushin Kyuko) 10:00 Tanigami 10:06 (Kobe railway train) 10:17 Arimaguchi 10:19 (Kobe railway train) 10:23 Arima Onsen (400 yen + 900 yen = 1300 yen)

Visit Arima hot springs, Kinnoyu (Gold springs), Ginnoyu (Silver springs) or Taiko no Yu. You can get discount to go these hot springs. These hot springs open from 9:00 am. By the way, Taiko is a name of title of Hideyoshi Toyotomi.

If you want to have more relaxation, you can use daily plan of high end hotels. Arima Grand Hotel has daily hot springs use plan at 3500 yen (4000 yen on weekend). It includes hot springs and 2000 yen voucher. You can use this voucher for shopping or meal.

Arima Onsen 14:09 (Kobe railway train) 14:13 Arimaguchi 14:29 (Kobe railway train) 14:39 14:41 Tanigami (Hokushin Kyuko and Kobe subway) 14:51 Sannomiya (900 yen)

You can visit anywhere in Kobe you want, such as Kitano, Kobe port.

To Namba : Sannomiya 20:11 (Hanshin train) 20:34 Amagasaki 20:39 (Hanshin) 20:59 Namba (400 yen)

Kyoto Highlight

You can complete most of Kyoto Must-See spots in one day!

From Namba : Namba 08:59 (Osaka subway Midosuji line) 09:05 Yodoyabashi 09:10 (Keihan Ltd Exp train) 09:58 Shichijo (200 yen + 600 yen = 800 yen)
From Umeda : Umeda 9:01 (Osaka subway Midosuji line) 09:05 Yodoyabashi 09:10 (Keihan Ltd Exp train) 09:58 Shichijo (200 yen + 600 yen = 800 yen)

Shichijo, Kiyomizu-Gojo, Gion-Shijo and Sanjo are the gateway station to Higashiyama area. There are tons of spots there. It is impossible to visit most of spots in half day. If you really want to see this area, don’t try this itinerary. Actually even one full day is not enough to cover most of spot.
In this itinerary, I assume to visit Sanjusankendo (三十三間堂), Kiyomizudera temple (清水寺) and Yasaka Jinja shrine (八坂神社).

Kawaramachi 13:05 (Hankyu train) 13:06 Karasuma 13:09 (Kyoto subway Karasuma line) 13:19 Kitaoji (Kyoto bus 12-20 minutes) Kinkakujido (金閣寺道) bus stop (150 yen + 250 yen + 220 yen = 620 yen)

Actually Kyoto city bus #12 goes straight to Kinkakujido bus stop from Kawaramachi or Sanjo-Keihan. This is the easiest. But it is affected by traffic congestion. When you explore Kyoto, try to use trains as much as possible. That is a key to save your time. From Kitaoji to Kinkakujido, you can take #101, #102 or M1. Bus comes every 10 to 15 minutes. Kikakuji temple is 5 minutes walk from bus stop.

Kikakujido (Kyoto city bus 5 minutes) Kitano-Hakubaicho 15:06 (Keifuku railway a.k.a. “Randen”) 15:17 Katabiranotsuji 15:25 (Keifuku railway a.k.a. “Randen”) 15:32 Arashiyama (220 yen + 200 yen = 420 yen)

Kitano-Hakubaisho station is only 3 bus stops away from Kikakujido. You can walk if you want. It takes about 20 minutes. Keifuku railway is a small local railway. It is like a street car.
In Arashiyama, you don’t have much time to visit temples and shrines. You can walk along Katsura river. And you may be able to ride Sagano sightseeing tram night train. But Sagano sightseeing train is not covered by Kansai Thru Pass.

Arashiyama 20:03 (Hankyu train) 20:11 Katsura 20:21 (Hankyu train) 20:55 Umeda 21:00 (Osaka subway Midosuji line) 21:08 Namba (390 yen. If you go to Namba, add 230 yen for subway)

If you have just round trip to Kyoto, it is not enough to use Kansai Thru Pass. But if you visit several places, this pass gives you a great deal.

Total fare is 2230 yen from/to Umeda and 2460 yen from/to Namba.

Nara and south Kyoto one day

There are a big number of Torii at Fushimi Inari shrine. ©Kyoto Convention Bureau /©JNTO
There are a big number of Torii at Fushimi Inari shrine. ©Kyoto Convention Bureau /©JNTO

If you visit only Nara, it is not enough to get 1800 yen worth. So I combine south Kyoto and Nara because it is the closet place from Nara.

From Namba : Osaka-Namba 09:01 (Kintetsu railway Rapid Express) 09:39 Kintetsu-Nara (540 yen)
From Umeda : Umeda 8:45 (Osaka subway Midosuji line) 08:54 Namba (walk) Osaka-Namba 09:01 (Kintetsu railway Rapid Express) 09:39 Kintetsu-Nara (230 yen + 540 yen = 770 yen)

Subway Namba station is very close to Kintetsu Osaka-Namba station. If you miss 9:01 train, next train comes in 10 minutes.

Most of places in Nara can be accessed by walk from the station. Please see the post, How to access to Nara by Japan Rail Pass. If you don’t use JR Pass, Kintetsu Railway is more convenient to get more details.

Nara 13:43 (Kintetsu railway Rapid Express) 14:24 Kintetsu-Tanbabashi (walk) Tanbabashi 14:33 (Keihan railway local train) 14:40 Fushimi-Inari (540 yen + 200 yen = 740 yen)

Kintetsu-Tanbabashi station is located at same place as Keihan’s Tanbabashi station. 9 minutes is way enough to transfer. Both stations are not big terminal stations. You cannot miss it.

Fushimi Inari shrine is 10 minutes away from the station.

Fushimi-Inari 15:39 (Keihan railway local train) 15:54 Chushojima 16:04 (Keihan train Uji line local train) 16:18 Uji (300 yen)

Uji 18:02 (Keihan railway Uji line local train) 18:16 Chushojima 18:21 (Keihan railwa Limited Express) 19:04 Yodoyabashi (Osaka subway Midousuji line 10 minutes ride) Namba or Umeda (400 yen + 200 yen = 600 yen)

Total fare is 2180 yen to/from Namba and 2410 yen to/from Umeda.

If you have more, you can go to Gion in Kyoto. After you finish Uji sightseeing, you can take the train to Gion-Shijo at Chushojima.

Uji 18:02 (Keihan railway Uji line local train) 18:16 Chushojima 18:21 (Keihan railwa Limited Express) 18:33 Gion-Shijo

You can enjoy dinner and walk in Kyoto if you want. The last train departs at 23:06 from Gion-Shijo. You can transfer subway at Yodoyabashi from this last train. You still have lots of time for Gion, Kyoto.

Yoshino. Recommended for cherry blossom season

Yoshino must be the best Sakura spot in Japan! ©NARA TOURISM FEDERATION/©JNTO
Yoshino must be the best Sakura spot in Japan! ©NARA TOURISM FEDERATION/©JNTO

Yoshino is located at south part of Nara. It is very famous as cherry blossom viewing spots. But the pass does not cover all part of the trip to Yoshino. You have to pay some extra to get there.

From Namba : Namba 08:56 (Osaka subway Midousuji line) 09:03 Tennoji (walk) Abenobashi 09:20 (Kintetsu railway Express train) 10:53 Yoshino (230 yen + 690 yen = 920 yen)
From Umeda : Umeda 08:47 (Osaka subway Midousuji line) 09:03 Tennoji (walk) Abenobashi 09:20 (Kintetsu railway Express train) 10:53 Yoshino (270 yen + 690 yen = 960 yen)

The pass cover the trip to Tsubosakayama station. It is still 50 minutes away from Yoshino. The extra fare is 420 yen for one way.

Once you arrive in Yoshino, you can enjoy as much as you want until the last train depart at 22:12.

Total fare is 1840 yen to/from Namba and 1920 yen to/from Umeda.
*Above fare is the worth that is covered by the pass. You need to pay another 840 yen on top.

Mt. Koya one day trip

If you want to visit Mt. Koya as day trip, Kansai Thru Pass is one of the choice. But if you want to stay in Mt. Koya, Koyasan World Heritage Ticket is much better choice.

From Namba : Namba 09:01 (Osaka subway Midousuji line) 09:49 Hashimoto 09:54 (Kintetsu railway Express train) 10:31 Gokurakubashi 10:36 (Cabel car) 10:41 Koyasan (850 yen + 380 yen = 1230 yen)
From Umeda : Umeda 08:47 (Osaka subway Midousuji line) 08:56 Namba 09:01 (Osaka subway Midousuji line) 09:49 Hashimoto 09:54 (Kintetsu railway Express train) 10:31 Gokurakubashi 10:36 (Cabel car) 10:41 Koyasan (230 yen + 850 yen + 380 yen = 1460 yen)

You can get the worth easily to have just return trip to Mt. Koya. And also you can take a bus and get some discount at several temples there.

Total fare is 2460 yen to/from Namba and 2920 yen to/from Umeda.

  1. HI Takeshi,

    Appreciate if you could give me some advise for my this trip at coming late March to early of April total about 11days.
    As we are very troubled over what pass to purchase will the best way.

    Day 1 :
    Arrive at Tokyo at about afternoon time

    Day 2 & 3: will be going around at Tokyo (should I buy JR pass for 7 days)

    Day 4 : shirakawa go

    Day 5 : himeji, Kobe ( Kansai thru pass)
    Day 6 : mount yoshino
    Day 7 : universal studio

    Day 8 : from Osaka to Hokkaido (plan to take plane , but if you have better advise) will spend about 3 days at Hokkaido

    Day 11: from Hokkaido to Tokyo
    Day 12 : take flight back to my country.

    This above about the overall planning of the route. As would like to seek advise for the better route planning if it too messy ,whether it is more advisable to go shirakawago first or Osaka first. Really appreciate if you could help.

    As for the accommodation will book nearer to the place as soon as we fix the best pass to buy.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Aless,

      Before you choose the pass, you need to fix your plan and make sure where you go in Hokkaido.

      Your plan is okay, not messy. Domestic flight is the best way to get Hokkaido from Osaka. It’s too far to get Hokkaido from Osaka. Please see the link below:
      http://jprail.com/destinations/hokkaido-area/how-to-get-sapporo.html

      But if you go Osaka before Shirakawago, you can go back to Tokyo after Shirakawago. You can stay in Tokyo one night and then you can go to Hokkaido by train from Tokyo. If do so, you don’t need to take domestic flight and you can use 14 days JR pass to cover whole part of your trip.

      If you keep current plan and take train to Tokyo on day 11 from Hokkaido, you need 14 days JR pass actually. If you take domestic flight from Hokkaido to Tokyo on day 11, you may need to get another pass for Hokkaido. And also JR Pass 7 days is too expensive for day 2 to 8. Hokuriku Arch Pass is your choice.

      If you save your cost, I recommend you to use 14 days JR pass and take trains to Hokkaido.

      Cheers,

      Takeshi / JPRail.com

      1. Hi Takeshi,

        Appreciate for your help one the last email, and Sorry for the late replying as was working on the more detail place to visit for the Hokkaido.

        Here finally have decided where to visit in Hokkaido :
        I’m planning to buy Jr Hokkaido for these few days

        1st day – new chitose airport to sapporo

        2nd day – will be visiting at sapporo and otaru, but will go back to stay at Sapporo at night. (Could you tell me where can get the train schedule for sapporo-otaru and otaru -sapporo) so I can decide if it’s possible to rush back to from otaru to sapporo.

        3rd day- from Sapporo to niseko grand hirafu for ski and then stay at hirafu town.

        4th day- from hirafu town to new chitose airport.

        Thank you.

        1. Hi Aless,

          You can find the timetables at the links below:

          New Chitose – Sapporo – Otaru
          http://www2.jrhokkaido.co.jp/global/english/ttable/05.pdf

          Sapporo – Kutchan
          http://www2.jrhokkaido.co.jp/global/english/ttable/06.pdf

          There is Hirafu station but Kutchan station is the gateway station to Hirafu. There is no transportation from Hirafu station.

          All total fares will be less than 10,000 yen. So single fare is cheaper than Hokkaido Rail Pass. There is no deals available better than single fares.

          Cheers,

  2. Hi Takeshi-San,

    We’re booked a trip to Osaka from 3-11 March 2017 and planing to stay at Osaka & will travel to Kyoto & Kobe by train.
    Any suggestion for 8 days trip & most important that my wife & daughter prefer to have 2 days shopping & enjoy good food.

  3. Hi Takeshi-San,
    I know that the Kyoto sea area pass is terminated, do you know any other pass available or a new one coming for the amanohashidate, maizuru and ine area?
    Thanks Takeshi-San

  4. Hi Takeshi San! You have been very helpful in all your suggestions. There are so many things learnt by just reading the comments and replies. Thank you for all your help.

    My family and I will be exploring the Kansai region this January and we plan to go to Biwako Valley. I would just like to ask what is the cheapest way to get there and if there are passes like Kanto Wide Area pass which includes the Gala Yuzawa attraction.

    Another question is can I use the visitor’s pass to go to Minoh park. Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Wiz san,

      The only choice is Kansai area pass. This is cheaper than regular fare to take JR train to Shiga that is the nearest station to Biwako valley.
      http://jprail.com/travel-informations/other-rail-passes/rail-pass-for-visitors/how-to-use-jr-west-kansai-area-pass-compare-pass-and-single-fare.html

      But this does not include bus fare and admission. Unfortunately there is no deals available like Tokyo Wide Pass.

      Cheers,

      Day 1 Kobe Access Ticket

      1. Thank you for the info.

        May I know if still possible to catch up sakura around 3rd or 4th May in kansai? If not, where should I go and which pass I better get? Thanks

        1. Hi Chen,

          You have to go way far from Kansai region. Usually Hokkaido and northern part of Tohoku have cherry blossom in the beginning of May. You need to have JR pass. And these regions are not day trip destination from Kansai.

          Cheers,

  7. Hi Takeshi-san,

    I just got back from Tokyo last month, and i loved it so much! Now im planning to visit Kyoto and Osaka. Regarding the Kansai Thru Pass, does it cover only the ride from Kansai Airport to Osaka/Namba? or it can cover all the way to Kyoto? Here is a draft of my itinerary

    Day 1:
    Arrival at Kansai around 11:30AM
    Depart for Kyoto using Kansai Thru Pass
    Fushima Inari Shrine and
    Kiyomuzi-dera
    Gion for dinner

    Day 2:
    Early visit to Arashiyama Bamboo Forest
    Golden Pavilion
    – any more suggestion to visit?
    4PM – Depart for Osaka
    Dotonburi at night
    Any place worth visiting at night?

    Day 3:
    Osaka Castle and Park
    Umeda Sky Building
    Shitennoji
    Around Namba
    Shinshaibashi at night

    Day 4
    free time
    9AM Depart for Kansai Airport for 1:30PM flight.

    Do you recommend us to get the Kansai Thru Pass?

    Thanks,

    Richmond-san

    1. Hi Richmond,

      Kansai thru pass covers your trip but not best choice. If you use Kansai thru pass for arrival day, you need to change the trains at least twice and spend many hours. Limited express Haruka is the best way to get Kyoto because it’s direct and you can maximize your time. Haruka discount ticket is available.
      http://jprail.com/travel-informations/other-rail-passes/rail-pass-for-visitors/icoca-and-haruka-ticket-very-flexible-and-good-deal-for-tourist-who-stay-in-kansai.html

      You can purchase Kansai one pass beside Haruka discount ticket.
      http://kansaionepass.com/en/about.html?info=1

      You can use this for Kyoto and trip to Osaka, and may be trip to Kansai airport if you still have fund in Kansai one pass. It depends on how much you use it in Kyoto.

      In Osaka, you don’t need to use Kansai one pass. Osaka amazing pass is the best choice:
      http://www.osaka-info.jp/osp/en/

      You can use Kansai one pass as I mentioned for trip to KIX. But there are some deals available if you need.
      http://jprail.com/sample-itineraries/airport-access/kansai-kix/how-to-choose-the-deals-for-access-tofrom-kansai-airport.html

      There are many many places in Kyoto and Osaka. Please check it at Japan Guide.

      1. Hi Takeshi-san,

        Apologies for the late reply. Thank you so much for this.

        Just a question, we already have the icoca card with us, and we are planning to buy the discounted Haruka ticket. But are we allowed to buy One Way KIX to Kyoto (1600yen), then one way Shin-osaka to Kix (1300yen)? This is because our itinerary is Kansai airport to Kyoto to Osaka then back to Kansai Airport.
