What pass or card to get?

Here's my itinerary, need help to identify what card or pass to get:

1. Tokyo for 2 days and will use both JR lines and Tokyo Metro

2. Kyoto for 1 day, will use Nara and Sagano line, and bus

3. Osaka for 1 day, will use subway and Nankai limited express to airport

Is there a universal card applicable to these cities? Is there a Kansai pass good for 2 days that covers JR lines and buses?

1. Re: What pass or card to get?

I keep on thinking you have asked the same question in different ways already?

Anyway, JR Pass aside (since I think you said you will take the Willer Express night buses?), the simple answer is there are no train or subway passes worthwhile at all. The only pass that can save you a few hundred Yen max is the 500 Yen 1-day Kyoto city bus. I am sure you have read posts about Kyoto city traffic though so don't rely on buses to get around for long journeys.

Suica, Pasmo and ICOCA offer convenience but no discounts. I am sure we have told you that as well already.
