Hi there,

1.) Use the Narita Express directly from Narita Airport to Shinjuku station. You can walk from here to your hotel.

2.) Here's how to travel from Shinjuku to Kiryu station.
You can adjust the time/date at the bottom of the page to your own liking.

3.) From Shinjuku - Osaka, take a local service to Tokyo station. From there you can use the Shinkansen to Shin-Osaka station. Here transfer for a local service to Osaka station. There is a direct train from Kyoto station from Osaka.

I must say that your itinerary in the Kansai area looks very busy. Her I would recommend starting early, so you can fit in everything.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi, You could use the link I posted in 2.) for travel from Shinjuku to Kiryu station.

As for Osaka, I recommend visiting, Umeda, Namba, Shinsaibashi and Shinsekai. These are interesting areas to talk around in with lots of things to see and do.
