How to go Osaka to Nagoya

I will arrive to Osaka airport on 3.July.2015 at 17:55. I want to go to Nagoya. I bought my JR Pass ticket but I couldn't understand if there is any direct train from Osaka to Nagoya. Could you please give information?

Secondly, When I arrive to Osaka airport, is there any train station in the airport or should I use any other transport to go to the train station and exchange office.

Thanks for your support

Hello there,

First off, Osaka has two airports. The smaller Itami Airport, sometimes called Osaka Airport and the bigger Kansai Airport. Do you know on which one you will arrive? From there make your way to Shin-Osaka station. From where you can use the Shinkansen (bullet train) directly to Nagoya.

From Kansai Airport, take the Haruka Express train to Shin-Osaka.

From Itami, take a bus to Shin-Osaka.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks for your quick reply. I will arrıve to Kansai Airport.
Is there a place for approving the JR Pass in Kansai Airport?
Is JR Pass valid for Haruka Express?

In addiiton to that, how often Shin Osaka is coming?

Hi there,

Yes you can exchange the JR Pass at Kansai Airport and it is valid for use on the Haruka Express.

There's a train to Shin-Osaka about every 30 minutes.

ıs there any web site or brochure that I can use to check the travel time in train?

Most probably I will take Haruka Express. 18:30

If it takes 15 minutes ( if you also give information about that, it will be appreciated), I will take Shin Osaka at 19:00
