Narita to Osaka - quickest route with JR Pass Green

I purchased a JR Pass Green and looking for the quickest route to Osaka from Narita that can be used with the pass. I looked on Hyperpedia and there are a couple of options. I will be arriving at 3PM on 03/29/14 so I assume I'll be through customs by 5PM and looking at the 6:18PM Shinkansen to Osaka.


Hi there!

The quickest route with the JR Pass is to take the Narita Express to Tokyo station and board the Shinkansen to Osaka there.

Trains depart every 30 minutes. Here are a couple of example itineraries.

Hope this helps!
