kansai 10 days trip

I'm going to Osaka on Mid October 2013. Going to spend 10 days there. Plan to go:

Kyoto (2 days)-Nara(1 day)-Tokyo(2 days)-Kanagawa (2days)-Osaka (2 days)? Is this a good planning in terms of sightseeing and transportation cost? Thanks.

I don't know where you exactly go in those cities, but Kyoto - Nara - Osaka and Tokyo - Kanagawa is within 1 day trip distance. changing accommodations is not worth it.

Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka is in the same large urban area. For travelers coming for a short time, It doesn't really make much sense to change hotels within the Kansai Region, although you can if you want to. Kanagawa and Tokyo is out of the Kansai Region (it's in the Kanto Region), about 500km+ away from Osaka. If you have looked at maps and understand the geography roughly, you might start considering how to travel that distance (some tourists to Japan do skip Tokyo altogether if they are not so interested or in short of time, although Tokyo isn't really that boring).

What are you going to do in Kanagawa? If no specific plans, stay in Tokyo longer. 2 days in Tokyo is too short.

Likewise, you don't need 2 days for Osaka. Allocate one more day to Kyoto.

I live in Kanagawa Prefecture.

Kanagawa Prefecture is a possible day trip from Tokyo.

However, Kanagawa Prefecture have a tourist attractions named Yokohama and Kamakura and Hakone.

If you want to return to Osaka,you stay in hakone and can take a shinkansen from odawara station.

(Shinkansen stops about every one for 30minutes.)

You can ride the bullet train from Odawara.

However, if you did not have much time if, less time consuming is better to get on the Shinkansen from Shinagawa or Shin-Yokohama.
