    The Station Master
  1. Luggage

    According to JR regulations, each passenger may bring up to two pieces of luggage onto trains, not including smaller bags. Each piece of luggage may not weight more than 30kgand its three dimensions (length, width and depth) may not add up to more than 250cm, while its length may not exceed 200cm. Local trains may be crowded during rush hour. If you have Japan Rail Pass you can get reserved seats on Thunderbird limited express from Osaka to Kyoto, or Shinkansen from Shin-Osaka to Kyoto. Ther are also several luggage delivery companies that will pickup luggage from your hotel in Osaka and deliver it directly to your hotel in Kyoto.
  2. osaka to kyoto - kyoto to osaka

    You can find information about all the ways to travel from Osaka to Kyoto on this page: https://www.osakastation.com/traveling-from-osaka-to-kyoto/ Yes, you can use ICOCA, or any other IC card, in Kyoto. All local IC cards in Japan can be used in other regions. https://www.japanstation.com/japans-prepaid-transportation-cards-ic-cards/
  3. Best Pass for Multiple Trips to KIX

    Nankai All Line 2 day pass will work for your trips to the airport, but it only covers Airport Express (base fare), for Rapi:t you will need to pay additional Limited Express surcharge of 510 yen one way. With this pass two return journeys to the airport on two separate days on Airport Express will cost you 2,000 yen (500 per ride). Without a pass two return journeys will cost you 3,680 on Airport Express (920 per ride) and 5,720 on Rapi:t (1,430 per ride). There are other discount tickets available for Rapi:t, some of them have to be purchased outside Japan: http://www.howto-osaka.com/en/ticket/ticket/rapitEconomy.html http://www.howto-osaka.com/en/ticket/ticket/nambaRT.html
  4. kansai airport to imamiya

    The train fare for Nankai Rapit is the same to Shin Imamiya and Nankai Namba - ¥ 1,430. You can buy a ticket to Namba and get off at Shin Imamiya. Regular Nankai Airport Express takes about the same time and it's a little cheaper at ¥920, but the seats are not as comfortable as Rapit. You can find more information about Rapit and Airport Express on this page: https://www.osakastation.com/the-nankai-airport-line-the-airport-express-rapit-services-for-kansai-airport-namba/
  5. Booking a sagano railway ticket

    November is the peak season for this area. Tickets are usually booked months in advance. You can try one of the Japanese travel agencies like JTB of HIS. They have local branches in many countries. http://www.jtbnetherlands.com/ http://tojapan.nl/en/his-netherlands/
  6. From Sapporo to Tokyo by Shinkasen

    Your schedule looks fine. Transfers at Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto are very quick and the station is designed to make transfers easy. It will take not more than 5 minutes to transfer from an arriving local train to shinkansen. You will just need to pass through ticket gates on the same platform. You can find a station layout map on this page: https://www.hakodatestation.com/shin-hakodate-hokuto-station/ You will need to make reservations for the entire journey with your JR Pass. We suggest you make reservations as early as possible after arriving in Japan. With a JR Pass you can make reservations at any JR tickets office at any station, including New Chitose airport and Sapporo Station.
  7. kansai airport to namba station

    The last Rapit service departs from Kansai Airport at 23:00 on weekdays. There are several Airport Express trains after that until 23:55. You can find more details about Nankai Kansai Airport services here: https://www.osakastation.com/the-nankai-airport-line-the-airport-express-rapit-services-for-kansai-airport-namba/ and a full schedule here: http://www.howto-osaka.com/en/traffic/train/timetable.html
  8. Sunrise Seto/Izumo Cancelled From Dec 17

    We also couldn't find any confirmation that Sunrise Seto has been cancelled. The schedule is still available on Jorudan. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/?sub_lang=ja We will monitor the news on this topic and post an update if anything comes up.
  9. The route mark on the train type display.

    Some services run along the Osaka Loop Line for only part of their route. That's why they don't carry the "O" code for the Loop Line, but the code for the line of their ultimate destination. Here is a route map of all the lines with the letter codes: https://www.jr-odekake.net/eki/pdf/ubn.pdf
  10. Destination of Kansai Airport Rapid Service.

    Departing from Kansai Airport Station the Kansai Airport Rapid Service follows the Kansai Airport Line to Hineno Station, and then follows the Hanwa Line to Tennoji Station. From Tennoji Station the train then follows a clockwise course around the Osaka Loop Line, stopping first at Osaka Station, before reaching Kyobashi Station. Some trains terminate at Kyobashi Station and others continue on to complete the circle at Tennoji Station. https://www.osakastation.com/jr-kansai-airport-line-kansai-airport-rapid-service/
  11. Shoji station coin locker

    Shoji is a small station and we would not recommend relying on lockers there to store your huge luggage. We would suggest storing your luggage at a bigger station on your way to Hiroshima and back.
  12. YOkoso Pass Price

    Yes, this is correct. If you buy online the discounted price is 1,500. If you buy at the ticket office the full price is 1,650.
  13. South east shinjuku to Subaru building

    From the New South exit you can walk around the station on the west side. Here is a map: https://goo.gl/maps/rf6KyJkfvA42
  14. Lost phone

    Unfortunately, there is no email address. This is the phone number for Lost & Found at Kyoto Station: 075-361-4601 (Japanese language only). If you are still in Japan, you may want to ask someone to make the call for you. Good luck and we hope you get your property back!
  15. Facilities on Nankai trains to Wakayama

    Hello sstresslulu, Nankai trains on this line are standard commuter trains, not long distance limited express trains. There are no toilets and no food sold on these trains.
