  1. There is dedicated luggage space in every car on Narita Express that can accommodate large suitcases.

    It is much easier to transfer at Shinagawa station. Tokyo station is busier and more complex to navigate.

    There are also luggage delivery services that will send your large suitcase from Narita directly to your hotel in Kyoto. Look for “luggage delivery” on Arrivals level at Narita.

  2. There are two types of Nankai Airport Express trains:

    1. The Airport Express commuter train. No reservations are required for this train and the journey time is about 44 minutes. Boarding time is not specified on tickets. IC cards like ICOCA can also be used.

    2. The Rapi:t limited express service between Kansai Airport Station and Namba Station. All seats on this train are reserved. Tickets are issued with a boarding time and seat number.

    You can find more information about Nankai Airport Express trains here: https://www.osakastation.com/the-nankai-airport-line-the-airport-express-rapit-services-for-kansai-airport-namba/



  3. Generally, you can use a locker for a maximum of three days. After the initial first day charge you will need to pay for extra days when you collect your luggage. The locker will not open until you add the payment for extra days. After three days your property will be transferred to another storage area. If your property is not claimed from storage within 30 days it will be disposed of.

    Information about lockers and luggage storage in Shinjuku can be found on this page: https://www.shinjukustation.com/shinjuku-station-lockers-luggage-storage-and-delivery/

    Some hotels will store your luggage for a few days if you are staying there. You can also use a delivery service to send your luggage directly to your next destination or to the airport.

  4. 1. The last airport express train from Kansai Airport departs at 23:55. The ticket office will be open until that time.


    2. Nankai Namba station is about 5-10 minute walk from Hotel Monterey Grasmere. https://goo.gl/maps/b9m43hQtCq3cqcbq6

    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)

    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.
