This is my first overseas trip to Japan and I am very overwhelmed with Japan's train line system.
Can you please help? Is there perhaps other lines I can take that are easier and quicker?
Kansai Airport to the Osaka Dotonbori Hotel
KANSAI AIRPORT > LTD Exp Haruka > TENNOJI > JR Yamatoji Line Local > JR NAMBA
Osaka Dotonbori Hotel to Kyoto Citadines Hotel
JR NAMBA > JR Yamatoji Line Local > TENNOJI > LTD Exp Kuroshio or Haruka > SHIN OSAKA
Kyoto Citadines Hotel to Tokyo Sunroute Hotel
GOJO > Kyoto City Subway Karasuma Line > KYOTO
Tokyo Narita Airport to the Tokyo Narita Richmond Hotel
Narita Airport Terminal 2 > Keisei Main Line Ltd Exp > KEISEI-NARITA
I think that covers the main areas of transport.. can anyone please please help??
The JR Pass will cover nearly all of your transport. Here is where some extra attention is required:
KYOTO > Kyoto City Subway Karasuma Line > GOJO, the Kyoto Subway is not covered by the JR Pass and a normal tickets is required. This is only cost around 200yen for one way.
Narita Airport Terminal 2 > Keisei Main Line Ltd Exp > KEISEI-NARITA. The Keisei line is not covered by the JR Pass. Instead you can use the Narita Express which is covered by the JR Pass.
It all looks good for the rest!
