Hi, I'm still confused about how to use the JR pass. I will be arriving at Haneda airport by 2 pm and will go straight to osaka but my friend's flight they will arrive by 5 pm. Is it still possible for them to exchange their pass if they will come around that time? And also just wondering, according to the google maps, Keikyu-Kuko Line is the only station I can see but it's not included in JR pass right? Is it possible to provide the right station and what line do we have to take to go to Osaka. Thank you so much

Hi there,

Your friend will still be able to travel on to Osaka with a 5pm arrival at Haneda Airport. The JR Exchange station is open until 19:00 and train connections are available until 20:14 with the JR Pass.

You can use the JR Pass to fully travel to Osaka. From Haneda Airport take the Tokyo Monorail from Haneda to Hamamatsucho station, there transfer to the JR Yamanote line bound for Tokyo station. From Tokyo station, Shinkansen trains depart to Osaka.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Got it. Thank you so much. Also JR Special Rapid Service and LTD. EXP THUNDERBIRD included to JR Pass too? In Hyperdia, there are some green train color icon so as long as it's green it's included?

Hi again,

That is indeed a good rule of thumb.

The Special Rapid Service and LTD. EXP THUNDERBIRD are included.

Hope this helps,
