  3. Hi, I'm planning on travelling from Osaka to Nara via the Kintetsu-Nara Line. I would like to use my Icoca Card. Which train service of the Kintetsu-Nara Line would I be eligible for (as some train services have more stops to make in between Osaka and Nara). * Local? * Suburban Semi-Express? * Semi-Express? * Express? * Rapid Express? * Limited Express? Thanks. JT
  4. There are some Nozomi shinkansen services that go from Kyoto to Hakata. Please note that Nozomi is not covered by the Japan Rail Pass. If you do not plan to use the Japan Rail Pass you can take Nozomi all the way to Hakata without any transfers. If you do plan to use the Japan Rail Pass you will need to take Hikari from Kyoto to Shin-Osaka and then transfer to Sakura to continue to Hakata. Transfers can be made in 10 minutes, but we'd recommend 20 to 30 minutes transfer time if you are not familiar with the station layout. Visit Hyperdia for the train schedules on your travel date and time to find the direct Nozomi services.
  5. We wish to do the reverse (Kyoto to Hakata), is it possible to book one through ticket, or will we need to make 2 separate bookings? How long should I leave between arriving at Shin-Osaka and departing from there for Hakata? Thanks
