Kansai 10D9N Itinerary 关西十天行程

Hello readers!

Going to Kansai but don't know where to start?
You will be pleased to know that we are sharing our Kansai 10D9N itinerary!
We've covered 4 places namely Osaka, Kyoto, Mount Koya and Kurama. It might look simple but we have spent a lot of our time on our research. We can tell you what to do in Kansai if you have 10 days, where to go in Kansai and how we saved on our transportation.

If you love what you are reading, please help us to share our love around ;) 
Day 1
Arrive at Kansai International Airport (KIX). Got my Osaka Unlimited Pass & Kansai Thru Pass at the visitor counter.
Checked in at Osaka Hana Hostel.
The main idea was to travel around Osaka, using Osaka Unlimited Pass (OUP) on the first 2 days as I have to use the pass for 2 days consecutively. Due to time constrain, I only went to places with free admission:
Osaka Museum of Housing and Living
Cruise Ship Santa Maria
Tempozan Ferris Wheel
HEP 5 Ferries Wheel
Floating Garden Observatory
Tombori River Cruise

Day 2
Osaka Castle Museum
Osaka Castle Nishinomaru Garden
Osaka Museum of History
Shintennoji Temple
Tennoji Zoo
Natural Hot Spring Naniwa no Yu
Tsutenkaku Tower*

Additional place: Shinseikai and Shinsaibashi (Not included in OUP)

Day 3
Traveled out of the city for two interesting museum:
Instant Ramen Museum- you can make your own cup noodle for 300Y.
Asahi Beer Museum- you will be introduced to the whole beer process making and get 3 free drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages) at the end of the visit.

Explored Nanba Area

Day 4
Arashiyama & Takao
Tenjinbashisuji Walking Street

Mount Koya

Then traveled to Kyoto for the following 2 days.

Day 6
Fushimi Inari ,Tofukuji, Kiyomizudera Temple, Higashiyama Walking Tour, Gion

Philosopher Path Walking Tour, Nishiki Market,  Imohe Temple

Day 8
Back in Osaka
Kurama & Kibune

Day 9
Kuramon Market
Minoo Park
Shinseikai & Shinsaibashi area
Day 10
Back to Malaysia

*Didn't managed to go up as the queue was very long and the waiting time was 1 hour. You should make Tsutenkaku Tower the first thing to do in Osaka during weekends.
