Hi,

My family of 5 will be arriving Haneda Domestic Airport from Hokkaido on 14th Dec at 1615 hours and we would like to travel directly to Kyoto upon arrival. How do we do that on JR Rail.

Thanks
Bert

Hi Bert,

You can activate the JR Pass directly at Haneda Airport. From there it's just a little trip before you can board the Shinkansen to Kyoto.

First take the Tokyo monorail to Hamamatsucho, here transfer to the Yamamote line to Tokyo station (only 6 minutes away). At Tokyo you can board the Shinkansen directly to Kyoto station!

Bon voyage!
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Is the monorail and the Yamamote line part of the JR Pass or I have to pay a separate fees.

Also in Kyoto, I am staying at the hotel near Omiya station. So is there JR Line that goes there from Kyoto station or the train will be different fees to Omiya station?

Thanks
Bert

Hi Bert,

Both the Yamanote line and Monorail are covered by the JR Pass, so no need to buy extra tickets.

Omiya(Kyoto) station unfortunately is not served by JR. I would recommend taking the bus to your hotel from Kyoto station.

I hope this helps!
