We are a group of 3 , will have a week in Japan in early August. We plan to have 3 nights in Kyoto and 3 in Tokyo (flying in to KIX and out from Narita)
Q1:How much a taxi drive wouls cost from KIX to Kyoto ?, should we buy 3x 1-day JR West Pass total 6000Y or should we take a taxi (if it would cost similar)?
Same sort of question in general for travelling in group of 3, tax or train/bus ?
Q2: We will be staying at Guest House San Rich Kyoto Station
A 10-minute walk from JR Kyoto Train Station. And in Tokyo , at Weekly Mansion Higashi-Ueno. We booked them based on budget and reasonably close to transport. Any comments/concerns about these places ? We can still cancel and rebook if it was a mistake.
Q3: From KIX should we stay around visiting Osaka then take train to Kyoto at night, or take train straight to Kyoto then go back to Osaka ?
4 must -visite places for us in Kyoto/osaka are Nara, Anashiyama, Gion and Dotonbori. May be Fushimi Inari. In what order should we do them ? (We arrive KIX at 9am and have 3 nights in Kyoto no night in osaka).
Q4: the train trip from Kyoto to Tokyo is it scenic ? If tt is a nice trip then we will do it during the day if not we may try an over night train. Any advice ?
