i realised why i said last bus is 430. diff info on the same website

the one i saw while clicking on the website
https://www.alpen-route.com/en/timetable/others01.html
service operates 7/9〜8/28

the one linked on hwz
https://www.alpen-route.com/en/timet...rs01_2017.html
△ service onÖ 15Apr-5Nov.Available.

guess i gotta ask on that day there then?
When I click on first link, it mentions the info is from 2016 onwards. Where as the second link has 2017 suffix.

Might be safer to check website again closer to traveling dates in case there is any 2018 updates.

Is 1230pm considered "peak" period for custom clearance? Because I'll land NRT airport at 1230pm and intend to rush for 1.14pm slot for NEX express as the next one is 1.45pm.. So we intend to rush to save time.

Is 30mins enough for clearance, waiting of luggage and buying NEX ticket?

now not enough, need to give at least 45 minutes due to the need to indivually inspect and question every single/group of travellers. Just go for the 1:45pm one to save yourself looking frantic and cause the custom official to hold you back because they suspect u might be up to no good. you also need to buy NEX tix, confirm not enough time. when u get to the counter to buy NEX ticket, ask for the next departing train.

Thanks! Just that it's my habit to plan everything in detailed before the trip, even if there's also min changes during the trip.

clearing immigration and getting bags is what I park under uncontrollable factors

I normally give myself plenty of leeway for that part. In any case if you have a important timing to meet on the day you land. You need to consider landing even earlier

Jialat, I booked my express 4 pass for Universal Studios Osaka, and when I got the ticket, the timing for Harry Potter is 4pm. Ask KLook they say cannot change the timing one, as it's as-is. If I reach Universal Studios earlier can I still queue to enter the Harry Potter attraction?

Depends on luck one. My Last trip in November land in Narita in morning. Disembark then walk quickly clearing very fast since i am almost the first few at the custom. Bag Check also fast.

But then Narita Express Frequency got to wait.

Yeah last year I landed in NRT at 9am and custom clearance seemed fast! I understand it's unpredictable, looks like I can only shop inside narita airport first if the frequency is more than 30mins @-@

Hi there, anyone could offer comments if itís worth making a 3 day trip to Fukuoka around 15th March? Iím going to Okinawa for a business trip and itís just 1.5 hours to get to Fukuoka. The last time I went to Fukuoka was more than a decade ago.

Arigato!
