How can I go From Kyoto to Narita airport with the JRPASS?

Hello,I want to know if there is an option to go from KYOTO to Narita Airport using the Jrpass, since the only one I see is a NOZUMI and we can't use that one with the JR pass right?

Thank you!


Hi there,

You can use the Hikari Shinkansen instead of the Nozomi. The Hikari travels the same route as the Nozomi but makes more stops on the way to Kyoto, there is at least one Hikari service every 30 minutes.

To get on the Hikari, you first have to take the Narita Express from Narita Airport - Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
