Hi,

I will be travelling for 9D8N to Osaka and Kyoto. Is there any suggestion on the itinerary so that we could maximize the sight seeing? I've read that we should include Nara in the itinerary. Its my first time and i would really appreciate all the suggestion. And how to get to Kyoto from Osaka by JR?

My first suggestion would be to skip Osaka. It's great for a night, and Dotonbori is a great introduction to urban Japan, but really it's just a big city. Spend your time in Kyoto, add a trip to Nara, and head to Himeji for the castle.
