Which pass should i consider taking ?

Hi, im going to Japan this summer for 6 days to Kansai region which is Osaka, Kyoto and Nara and i don't know which pass i should take since it's my first time going there. Should we take the Kansai Thru Pass for 3 days and the Osaka Amazing Pass for 2 days ?

Depends a lot on what specifically you wish to see or do. Remember that Thru cannot be used on JR, and Amazing is only on Osaka municipal lines (but does give very good discounts on admissions).

Plan out more detailed itinerary, including contemplating how you will get from and to airport (KIX presumably). I would still get ICOCA for backup.
