  6. The tickets are not sold on the train. You may be able to pay at the destination if you retain your JR ticket, but we would suggest purchasing a ticket first and taking the next train on IR Ishikawa Railway.
  7. There is a new Express Fuji Excursion train that runs directly from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko, but only in the morning (8:30 am and 9:30 am on weekdays, 7:35, 8:30 am and 9:30 am on weekends) You can find the schedule (including other connecting trains) for your travel dates on Hyperdia: http://www.hyperdia.com/cgi/en/search.html?dep_node=SHINJUKU(JR)&arv_node=KAWAGUCHIKO&via_node01=&via_node02=&via_node03=&year=2019&month=06&day=05&hour=08&minute=00&search_type=0&search_way=&transtime=undefined&sort=0&max_route=5&faretype=0&ship=off&regular=off&lmlimit=null&search_target=route&facility=reserved&sum_target=7 There is also a direct bus from Shunjuku to Kawaguchiko: https://highway-buses.jp/course/kawaguchiko.php

  9. On weekdays the first Nankai Airport Express leaves Namba station at 5:15 am and arrives at Kansai Airport at 5:58 am. On weekends the first Nankai Airport Express leaves Namba station at 5:10 am and arrives at Kansai Airport at 5:55 am. After the first train there are regular services about every 20 minutes. https://www.osakastation.com/the-nankai-airport-line-the-airport-express-rapit-services-for-kansai-airport-namba/
  10. You can use an ICOCA card on all the services you mentioned, except Limited Express. Limited Express requires additional seat reservation charge. All other services have non-reserved seats. https://www.osakastation.com/traveling-from-osaka-to-nara/
  11. 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.
  12. Hello Susanna, The main ticket office at Kyoto Station is open every day from 5:30-23:00. You can also buy tickets in advance at any JR ticket office in Japan.

  15. You will need separate tickets for Hanshin and JR lines. You can also use an IC card, like ICOCA or Suica, to make transfers easier. Just tap the card at the transfer point, no need to buy separate tickets. https://www.japanstation.com/japans-prepaid-transportation-cards-ic-cards/
