Hi,

I'll be travelling from Narita Terminal 1 to Kyoto station, however on Hyperdia while using the JR pass, the earliest trip is from 6.45pm and arrive at 11pm at night, however we arrive into Narita at 3.30pm and this does not suit us

Link above shows the timetable for when we arrive

Is there going to be any earlier trains that we can use our JR pass for or do we have to wait that long?

Hi there,

I was looking at alternatives but this does seem the best option. You could take the Narita Express before to travel to Tokyo and explore there a little before travelling on to Kyoto, however there are no options that will get you faster in Kyoto.

With a 3.30pm arrival, its more likely that you'll be able to get on the train after 17:00, then 16:00. It all depends on how busy it is but queues at immigration, luggage collection and the JR exchange desk at Narita Airport can take a good amount of time.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
