I want to buy NEX ticket to Shinagawa and Shinkansen ticket through to Nara via Kyoto upon my arrival on 20th November at Narita Airport.. Can I also at Narita buy my return tickets being: Kyoto to Shinagawa for the 2nd December and my NEX ticket from Shinagawa to Narita for the following morning 3rd December?. It would be good if i can but all tickets upon my arrival at Narita as it would save me the hassle of queueing up for return tickets at Kyoto and the Shinagawa on my return journey. Also, is it possible to pay for these tickets at the counter with credit card? I hope that is clear?. As always, thank you for your assistance.

Hi there,

Yes that's no problem at all, tickets can be purchased at any JR station up to 30 days in advance. All major credit cards are accepted. Just be sure to bring your passport, as this may be asked when purchasing tickets using a credit card.

Hope this helps,
