osaka, kyoto & tokyo

Osaka, Kyoto & Tokyo

Would like to know where I can take the Shinkasen from these places..

1) Osaka to Kyoto?

 Which station in Osaka should I take from?? 
 I'm staying at Hotel Shinsaibashi Lion's Rock.

2). Kyoto to Tokyo

3) Shinjuku to Narita

Thank you


Hi there,

I recommend learning planning with Hyperdia. This way you can find any route you want. That is covered by the JR Pass.

For instance, look at this route Osaka - Kyoto. Coming from Shinsaibashi with luggage, you will likely want to take the Osaka Subway to Osaka Station (Umeda) and from there use the JR. Alternatively you can travel to Shin-Osaka and take the Shinkansen, however this is not faster for this route. Kyoto - Tokyo, Shinjuku - Narita are both direct connections.

Hope this helps,
