Hi

I will be arriving at Kansai airport Friday 27th April at 3.15 and want to use my JR pass to go to Kyoto direct.

I will only be able to reserve once I arrive and will I be able to do this journey direct??

regards,

Jim

Hi there!

Yes - you can use the JR Pass to get into Kyoto pretty easily. The journey is direct on the Haruka Express and takes just over 1 hour (sample itinerary). You will have to reserve once you get to Japan however there are usually lots of seats on this train so you should have no problems getting a seat.

You can look up train timetables and costs for all of your legs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!

So just to clarify, the schedule you gave me is free of charge with the JR pass??

No fees at all?
