          Weekends and National Holidays 600 yen

Which ticket you should buy

If you travel in Osaka only one day, you can choose Enjoy Eco Card or 1 Day Amazing Pass. Both types of ticket includes the discount to sightseeing spots in Osaka. When compare the price, Amazing Pass is more expensive than Enjoy Eco Card. However, Amazing Pass already includes the admission fee of many sightseeing places while Enjoy Eco Card only offers the discount. I give some samples comparing the admission fee:


Place Eco Card Amazing Pass
Admission Fee (Adult)
Umeda Sky Building 1,000 -> 900 yen Free 
Osaka Museum of Housing and Living 600 -> 500 yen Free 
Tennoji Zoo 500 -> 350 yen Free 
Osaka History Museum 600 -> 450 yen Free
Tempozan Ferris Wheel 800 -> 700 yen Free 

Regarding the above samples, let's compare the cost:

Amazing Pass: 2,500 yen 
Enjoy Eco Card: 800 yen (weekday) + 900 + 500 + 350 + 450 + 700 = 3,700 yen

This means Amazing Pass save 1,200 yen. Amazing Pass is worth if you visit sightseeing places where covered by the pass, also travel a lot in Osaka but in case of travelling in Osaka and only few visit to sightseeing places, Enjoy Eco Card is better. Both Enjoy Eco Card and Amazing Pass do not cover JR.
