Travel from Haneda Airport to Osaka? 2010/9/13 12:26
Hi,
Will be flying into Tokyo at Haneda Airport. Though i'm flying into Tokyo, i intend to spend 1st 3 nights in Osaka and then back to Tokyo for another 4 nights. Can anyone help with the fllwg qns:

1) Can I use JR Pass to travel within Osaka and Tokyo?

2) How to travel from Haneda Airport to Osaka (Hotel Ichiei, Namba)? Would greatly appreciate if someone could offer a step-by-step help (i.e. which station to alight & transfer)using JR Pass.

3) Where can i exchange for the JR Pass since my 1st stop is Haneda Airport?

4) With 3 nights in Osaka and 4 nights in Tokyo, what would be the recommended places of interest (along with the station name) that i should visit during my stay?

5) Should i make a day trip to Kyoto when I'm in Osaka? How long is the travelling time? Can I use my JR pass? Please advise the direction as to which station to alight/transfer if required) What's nice in Kyoto?

Thanks so much in advance to anyone who can help.

Can I use JR Pass to travel within Osaka and Tokyo?

On JR trains only. But not on subways and other non-JR trains.

How to travel from Haneda Airport to Osaka (Hotel Ichiei, Namba)? Would greatly appreciate if someone could offer a step-by-step help (i.e. which station to alight & transfer)using JR Pass.

Haneda - (Keikyu Railway - not covered by the Japan Rail Pass) - Shinagawa - (Tokaido Shinkansen) - Shin-Osaka - (Midosuji Subway Line - not covered) - Namba

Where can i exchange for the JR Pass since my 1st stop is Haneda Airport?

The new international terminal building at Haneda will have a JR office for exchanging the rail pass. If it is not open yet, you can also exchange it at Shinagawa Station.

With 3 nights in Osaka and 4 nights in Tokyo, what would be the recommended places of interest (along with the station name) that i should visit during my stay?

Depends on your interests.
