From Kyoto to Narita Airport

Hi there,

I recently purchased a 7 day JR Pass and I need help with getting direction from Kyoto to Narita Airport on 08/24/2012 using the JR Pass. I search for route information through Hyperdia and the site advise to use Nozomi train, but my agent told me I cannot use the Nozomi train. Can you please let me know what's the best way to get to Narita airport with the JR pass? Thank you.

Hi there,

To find valid non-Nozomi trains you must deselect the NOZOMI / MIZUHO / HAYABUSA (SHINKANSEN) option in hyperdia when you do a search.

Here's a sample route for you from Kyoto to Narita airport on 08/24) to use as a guide. You can learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!

Hi Mari,

Sorry, I am still unable to find a valid route from Hyperdia site and your first link does not take me to the route info but rather to the main JR site. Also, I have watched the video and search again unchecking the Nozomi options but no result is found for my route. Can you please provide further guidance? I'm afraid my JR pass has no valid route to take me from Kyoto to Narita airport without having to pay extra fare. Thank you very much.
