Best rail passes for Kansai and Kanto 2008/2/15 13:01
Mid-March, I will be in Tokyo area for 6 days and hope to venture to Nikko and maybe Hakone. Then I intend to travel to Kyoto/Kansai area from Tokyo. I will be in Kyoto/Kansai area for 10 days to visit Kyoto, Nara, Himeji, maybe Ise, maybe Mt. Koya, maybe Uji. I will need to go to Kansai/KIX airport twice.

What are best train passes/tickets to buy? Buy a rail ticket between Tokyo-Kyoto, a pass for JR East; one pass for JR West or Kansai Passport?
Is it possible to buy 2 Kansai Passports during one trip?

Thank you for any help to un-confuse me.

I doubt that JR rail passes will the best solution for your itinerary. I personally would go for a regular ticket for the Tokyo-Osaka trip, free passes for Hakone and Nikko and prepaid cards for metropolitan travel in the Tokyo and Osaka regions. Maybe a 1-day JR West Kansai Pass for the daytrip to Himeji.
