questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

kyoto to kansai international airport

Kyoto to Kansai International Airport

Good Evening,
We are planning a trip to Japan.
Already we have purchased the JR Pass Green 1st Class.
Our last stop is at Kyoto and we want to travel directly from Kyoto to Kansai International Airport. Can we use the same to go directly to the airport via Haruka Train or should we take some other train to utilise our passes.

Hello there,

Yes, you can use the Haruka Express directly from Kyoto to Kansai Airport using the JR Pass.

There are also Green Seats available.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you so much for a quick response.

I am trying to find JR Tokaido Shinkansen timings from Tokyo to Kyoto but not able to get any information till now.

Trying to also find out luggage services in which I can send my luggage to Kansai International Airport in the morning and collect it in the evening before checking in for our flight back for Dubai. The information that I came across requires depositing our luggage 2 days in advance which would be very difficult as a tourist.

Would you be able to help me with the same.

Hi again!

I am afraid that same day delivery for luggage is pretty hard. Unless it is a lot of weight, consider taking your luggage with you on the train.

The Shinkansen time tables can easily be found using www.hyperdia.com

Does that help?

Thank you Daniel for all the useful informations. Made my research easier.

Can I use the Kyoto Subway with my JR Pass. We are going to stay very close to the Subway Tozai Line.
Are Kyoto Buses covered under the pass or do we need to buy another pass for the same.

Hi again!

I am afraid that the Kyoto subway and bus are not included in the JRpass.

You can however buy a 500yen day pass for the Kyoto bus.
