    Is there an office in the Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station where I can activate my JR voucher for a rail pass?  I would like to take the Shinkansen to somewhere on Honshu.

    You can activate your JR Pass at Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station JR Ticket office (open every days from 9:00 to 19:00) 

  2. Kyoto to Nara route is served by JR and Kintetsu railways. JR service from Kyoto to Nara is a commuter local or rapid train that doesn't have reserved seats. Kintetsu offers both local and limited express trains. Limited Express tickets with seat reservations can be purchases one month in advance at Kintetsu ticket office.

    I have a question please, from which platform at the KIX JR station do I take the JR Kansai-Airport Rapid service train?

    I know it is on 2nd floor but unsure of what platform yet, I search and search but unable to get the information

    I am aware please correct me if I am wrong, I have to look for the JR train that has the label OSAKA-KYOBASHI, right?

    Hi Terry,

    There are only two platforms at KIX JR station. One is usually used for Haruka Express and the other for JR Kansai Airport Rapid Service.

    It is really easy to navigate. Check the platform displays for the next JR Kansai Airport Rapid Service.

    The platform looks like this:



    All the Airport Rapid Services go to Kyobashi station.

    Hi, is there a limit to how many luggage they can take or accommodate in a day? I''m referring to availability or storage capacity. Thanks.

    There is no set limit. The arrangements are made to provide extra capacity during busy holiday travel periods.
