narita airport to shinsaibashi in osaka

Narita Airport to Shinsaibashi in Osaka

Hi, we are arriving in Narita Airport at 7pm on a Friday night and need to get to Shinsaibashi station. I've seen a route using the JR Narita Express which takes us to Tokyo Station then maybe a bullet train to Osaka? Opinions please? It will be late at night as well.


Hello there,

I am afraid that it will be nearly impossible to travel to Shinsaibashi (Osaka) on the same evening. The last possible train connection departs Narita Airport at a little past 8 pm and there may simply not be enough time to get through customs and luggage collection before buying train tickets and getting on the train. This route is not covered by the JR Pass.

My advise would be to stay near Narita Airport or travel on the Tokyo, then travel on the following morning.

Good luck!
