questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo to osaka

Tokyo to Osaka

I think I have worked it out correctly but a second opinion would be great.

I will be spending most of my time in Tokyo but will be flying to Busan from Osaka airport.

Using my JRP pass (already purchased)

SHINKANSEN HIKARI 465 then airport shuttle bus?

thanks

Hi there,

Are you flying out of Osaka Itami Airport or Kansai Airport? The first part Shinkansen Hikari is good for sure!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel.

I am flying out of Kansai.

I haven't booked a flight yet but it's either I fly or I use my JRP to get all the way to Fukuoka (Hekata) and get the ferry!

In case of Kansai, use the Haruka Express to Kansai Airport. You can also just use the JRP to Fukuoka. Its included and you can use the bullet train all the way to Hakata.

Is the Haruka express all the way from Tokyo or once I reach Hekata?

I'm still deciding whether to fly or ferry - either way it's a good few hours on a train!

From Tokyo its the Tokaido Shinkansen to Shin-Osaka, from there you can take the Haruka Express to Kansai Airport or the Sanyo Shinkansen to Hakata.
