Dear Team Explore Japan!
My two teenagers (19) will be traveling to Japan from Washington DC to visit high school friends in Kyoto.
It seems to make financial sense to have them fly into Tokyo, and take train to Kyoto.
Can they catch the Shinkansen from Narita or Haneda airport?
If they have to overnight in Tokyo before catching the Shinkansen, are there airport hotels with shuttles from the airport? They do NOT speak Japanese unfortunately and I would like to avoid a lot of train transfers especially after such a long flight.
Thank you for any advice.
