How much would it cost to take a one day trip to Kyoto from Osaka in the end of august? We are a group of 4 (females) 35-40 years old trying to plan a trip to Japan this august but we need some help!

Do you have a JR pass? Look up at hyperdia.com to have a rough idea esp the timing of your journey

Keep in mind that the price quoted by Hiromi refers to ordinary trains, not to the Shinkansen ones (for which, among other things, as Hyperdia show, you need to change in Shin-Osaka station). On a so short route, the Shinkansen aren't advantageous either in terms of time: by ordinary train the journey time is approximately 30 minutes

Osaka to Kyoto fares and travel times depend on which rail line you use. Besides JR, Keihan and Hankyu also run services to central Kyoto that might drop you off closer to your destination than JR.

See below link and change the dropbox choice to Osaka:
