jr pass - tokyo to kix airport

jr pass - tokyo to kix airport

I am visiting japan with my family ( 6 persons total ): May 9 arrival at KIX Osaka and May17 return KIX Osaka.
itinerary is KIX- OSAKA- KYOTO-TOKYO-HAKONE/FUJI-TOKYO- OSAKA-KIX: I intend to buy a green pass for convenience due to several luggages.

1) Is there an advantage if I instead proceed first to Tokyo from Osaka airport following this route :


My concern is on having several luggages to bring to Tokyo and then catching an early JR train from Tokyo hotel to Osaka airport ( FLIGHT ETD 14:00) on May 17.

any suggestions?

thank you for the kind attention


Hi there,

Putting Kyoto or Osaka at the end of your itinerary would offer a much more relaxed trip to the airport before you fly back home. With that in mind, I do think that the 2nd route is a slightly better option. There's a directly express train from Kyoto - Kansai Airport which only takes 80 minutes, however you could also stay in Osaka and take a local train from there to the airport (~50 minutes).

Hope this helps!
