questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

kumamoto to osaka

Kumamoto to Osaka

Dear Daniel-san,
I am trying to use the Hyperdia website, but I am unable to find what trains to take and what stops to disembark.
I will be in Kumamoto and want to get to Osaka in one day, I would like to get to Osaka as early as possible via Shinkansen. What trains and how long is the journey? Where do I switch trains?

Your help is appreciated,
thanks,
yethein

Dear Yethein,

Happy to help with this.

Here are a couple of example routes the train trip takes about 231 Minutes and only involved one transfer at Shin-Osaka station where you take a local train to Osaka station.

The earliest train departs at 06:10 and arrives just past 10 O clock.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Dear Daniel-san,
Again thank you for your information. I am assuming that I stay on the this Shinkansen without any changing in Hakata?
The website is very very helpful.
Thanks,

Hi again,

Yes most of the time trains will directly go to Osaka and there's no need to change trains at Hakata station.

Have a good trip!
