going to tottori from osaka

going to tottori from osaka

Hi,
I need to go to Tottori from Osaka. I arrive in Kansai airport and then hope to go straight to Tottori. Would the trip be covered by JR pass? I need to go to The Gosho Aoyama Museum because of my daughter whoes all aim of this Japan trip is manga. (Location: 1414 Yurashuku, Hokuei-cho, Tohaku-gun, Tottori Prefecture , JAPAN) I presume this is in Tottori city?
Many thanks in advance!!

Hi there!

For Tottori, you have 2 options:

  1. A fast option with the Super Hakuto which requires an extra surcharge of around ¥1800 each way as it uses non-JR tracks.
  2. A free option which uses the JR Kinosaki express or Hamakaze via Kinosaki onsen. This options is slower than option 1 by 1.5-2 hours.

Be sure to let the JR ticket office know which option you'd like to travel by when you arrive at Kansai airport as you will probably by default be recommended the pricier but faster option.

For the address of the museum you specified you'll be able to use the JR San'in line from Tottori. Bear in mind that this will be around 1-2 hours each way:

Sure - here's the slow one via Kinosaki and the faster one using Super Hakuto.

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
