Narita to Hamamatsu

Dear *****,Hello !>I am having trouble, however, getting information about trains in >Japan.  Both to/from Narita -> Tokyo and to/from Tokyo -> Hamamatsu.  Do >you know how much a train to/from both locations costs?  Also, how long >it takes for both?  If you know of a good web page to get that >information, that would also be very helpful.There are some useful Webpages for travelling in Japan(train, flight, hotel,etc) but all of them are in Japanese.Everyday I search/reserve with the webpages.I do not know English Webpage for Japanese Travelinformation now, so if I will find the page, I willinform you.NARITA --> HAMAMATSUThere are about 3-4 kinds of travel ways, but I thinkonly 1 way is convenient for oversea people. Other waysare so difficult because you must change trains in somecrowded stations without English displays.At Narita Airport, please go to "JR ticket" counter, and you should use JR line.(Narita Airport has 2 different train line, JR andKeisei Line.  Do not choose Keisei (SkyLiner))You can buy there: - direct train ticket from Narita Airport to Hamamatsu - express ticket for "Narita Express" to Tokyo - express ticket for "Shinkansen" ("Kodama" or "Hikari")	from Tokyo to Hamamatsu(1) Narita Airport --> Tokyo"NARITA EXPRESS" line, about 60mininterval - 2 trains / every hour(Please be careful that Narita Express goes many stations,Shinjuku, Yokohama, etc.  Please get off at Tokyo Station)(2) Change trains at Tokyo StationYou will arrive at Tokyo Station at Sobu-Line platform,B4F of Tokyo station, FAR from Shinkansen platform.I know the route very well, but it takes about 12-15minfor me.  Then, I think you will take about 30min !With the display "Shinkansen platform", you willgo up to ground-level (escalator or elevatoer), thenyou will watch there are about 20 platforms.The Tokaido Shinkansen is "dark blue" marked, pleasedo not choose "Tohoku/Joetsu Shinkansen" withgreen display.Tokaido Shinkansen platform is NO. 15-19, farestfrom Sobu-Line platform.(3) Tokyo --> Hamamatsu"Tokaido Shinkansen" expressThere are 3 types of JR "Tokaido Shinkansen" express,"Nozomi" - all skips Hamamatsu, so you must not choose"Hikari" - very few stops Hamamatsu (about 90min)"Kodama" - all stops Hamamatsu (about 130min)interval - 2 trains / every hour (Kodama)The ticket will cost 10880yen, and if you choose"non-reserved seat" for Shinkansen, the discountwill about 510yen.  In "Kodama", there are many"non-reserved seat" cars, but in the evening thereare so crowded, then I suggest to choose reservationseat.There are many English Displays from Narita Airportto Tokyo Station and Hamamatsu Station, and staffscan understand English, I think.I do not know the time of your arrival Japan/Hamamatsu,but this is the most standard way.  Normally, I selectthis way.Best, Yoichi Nagashima
