Hi there!

As your flight is at 10am on the 17th, you'll need to be at the airport by 8am at the latest.

The earliest bullet trains from Yokohama to Kansai airport on the 17th depart Yokohama at 6:00am, and get you into Kansai Airport at 9:30am. This will be too late for you I think.

Your only option I think is to travel to Osaka the night before on the 9:38pm from Shin-Yokohama to Shin-Osaka. You may miss some of the end of the last game if it goes far into extra time I'm afraid, but this is the very latest train you can catch! Please note that this train is not valid for JR Pass holders - If you are using a JR Pass you'll need to get the 8:22pm bullet from Shin-Yokohama to Shin-Osaka. Aim to stay overnight in Shin-Osaka, and then get any of these trains to Kansai airport in the morning.

Sorry there's no perfect answer, but you will not need to miss all of the game!

Thanks a lot mary ... are delays commom in Japan? I mean, in Brazil if a train is suppose to leave at 6am, it will probably leave at 6h10 or 6h20... my flight is gonna depart at 10h55.. so, i think, if we arrive at airport at 9h35, there will be enough time .... what u think? thanks....
