questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

osaka to tokyo

Osaka to tokyo


I am scheduled to reach Osaka on 23rd Feb 3.40 pm and want to take the fastest train from Osaka airport to Tokyo covered by JR pass the same day, I tried hyperdia and also an other website but was unable to find any schedule or timings. Request you to please help me with the schedule, allowing 1.30 hrs for immigration and other stuffs, I think I would be able to take a train only after 5 pm. Please suggest any app for iPhone or website that would be helpful in planning train timings covered by JR pass.

Also I woul like to know the cost between Kyoto and Hiroshima without JR pass



Hi there,

You can use to check time tables and route information. It can take a bit of time to learn planning with Hyperdia, so I suggest taking this guide.

The route you'll take would be: Kansai Airport - Shin-Osaka and then Shin-Osaka to Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
