I am going to a Cereza soccer match in Kincho stadium in Osaka while I am visiting Kyoto. What is the best route to Osaka from Kyoto using my JR Pass. How late does the train service run from Osaka to Kyoto on Sundays?

Hi there,

The best route is to take the Shinkaizoku (JR special rapid) service between Kyoto and Osaka station. These only take 29 minutes between both station and cost 560yen/one way. Trains run until midnight.

Hope this helps,
