4 Days in Osaka, Nara and Mt. Koya : Detailed Expenses

Because of the flight delay, I arrived at Kansai International Airport really late that was why I missed the last train (Nankai Limited Express Train) which left the airport at 11:29 pm. My second option was to take a Shuttle Bus Service (Night Bus) which was located at Terminal1. The bus took me to Nankai Namba Station and the ticket price was 5,700 yen. The travel time by bus was pretty much longer than the travel time by train (according to my research). Luckily, three other passengers I was seated right next to were also booked at the same hotel where I stayed at. So upon arrival at Nankai Namba Station, we hired a taxi going to our hotel and paid 1000 yen each. Awesome, wasn’t it?
           
In addition to this, I rented a pocket wifi to have access to GPS and maps. The rental cost was 5,500 yen

I didn’t include the money which I spent to buy souvenirs for my friends, as well as the cost of post cards and stamps. I flew with Air Asia from Singapore to Osaka via Kuala Lumpur and my airfare was only $360.00.

By the way, these links were really helpful during my research and preparation period.
