Ticket Office Closed when we Arrive!

Our flight gets into Haneda at 4:15AM Sept. 3rd and we planned to go to Kyoto via JR immediately after landing. The Haneda office doesn't open until 7:45am. Is there another option to exchange our vouchers?

Other logistical questions, once we get to Tokyo Station:
How often do trains leave Tokyo station to Kyoto? Will I need to reserve a seat? Can I only ride certain trains with the JR pass?

Hi there,

The exchange station at Tokyo Station opens at 7:30. You could travel there from Haneda and exchange the JR Pass there to save some time.

Trains depart to Kyoto about every 30 minutes. Here is how to make seat reservations.

Hope this helps,
