Good Deal on Passes
There are lots of reasonable rail passes for tourists traveling in Kansai area. What I recommend here is Kansai Area Pass by Japan Railway West (JR West). You can get unlimited rides on local trains in Kansai including rapid trains and the Kansai-Airport Express HARUKA. Bus run by the JR West is available with the pass.
