Travel Haneda Airport to Osaka

Travel Haneda airport to Osaka

Sincerely, I wonder what would be the best way to get to Osaka using the JRPass. Our flight arrives on December 13 at 22:00 at Haneda Airport As.
Thank you very much for your help.

Hi there,

It will not be possible to travel to Osaka on the same day, as public transport stops around midnight. My advise would be to find a hotel near the airport or in Tokyo and travel on the following morning by bullet train from Tokyo station.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi again,

Sorry for the delay in response, been very busy here.

The first bullet train departs around 6 am in the morning. You can arrive in Osaka before 10 am.

Kind regards,
Daniel

One question, will you be using a JR Pass or normal rail tickets?

JR Pass - 7 days

Okay, cool.

In that case: this would be the route.

However, you still have to exchange the JR Pass. This will be a problem though, as there is no exchange station that options this early.

See:
http://www.japanrailpass.net/en/exchange.html

Best scenario I can see is: exchange the JR Pass at Tokyo station at 7:30, then use the 8.03 Hikari to Osaka.

Hi Daniel, good day.

I just communicate a change in the airline schedule, therefore arrival at Haneda airport will be at 4:00 am on December 14.

We remain at the airport until they open offices to activate the JR Pass, would be best? and then go as fast as possible to Osaka.

December 14: Arrival in Japan and travel to Osaka
December 16: Travel to Yokohama
December 20: Travel to Tokyo

These are our main routes.

Thank you very much.

Hi again,

Yes, the best option would be to stay at Haneda and travel on from there. Alternatively, you could already make your way Tokyo station and start from there. This way you can save a bit of time, as the exchange station at Tokyo opens at 7:30. However you would have to pay for the ticket to Tokyo. I think it is around 600yen per person.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
