Tokyo-Heneda-Narita and JR pass

My wife and I will travel Japan at the end of August. We are landing at Heneda with a lot of luggage, so we're going to store it over there. But we are going to depart Japan from Narita.

  1. What is the easiest way to go from Tokyo to Heneda and than continue to Narite?

  2. Is this trip included in the JR pass?

  3. Is the local transportation in Kyoto, Hiroshima and Tokyo are also included in the JR pass ?

Thank you


Hi DOr,

1 and 2.) The easiest trip would be to take a direct shuttle bus between both airport, this option however is not covered by the JR Pass.

You can use the JR Pass on the following route: Use the Tokyo Monorail to travel to Hamamatsucho and transfer there to the JR Yamanote line to Tokyo. From Tokyo use the Narita Express to Narita Airport.

3.) Local JR lines are included, however other transport like the metro, tram, non-JR bus are not.

Hope this helps,
