From the Kansai airport, we would travel about an hour via train to get to Shin Osaka, where the bullet train towards Tokyo starts. We should be there before 9pm or else no more shinkansen ride for the night. I no longer know any other alternative available that does not need prior reservations.
Target time of arrival at Tokyo should be around 11pm-ish. Latest possible for me would be around 1130pm or else I'd be stuck at Kita Senju assuming the 12mn last train towards Kasukabe left without me.
I really hope I wouldn't start the year in Japan getting stuck at a train station, waiting for the 5am train. It's cold out there, that the Baguio flu I'm carrying might mutate into something more drastic.
Ahh, consequences of taking budget flights (even miles away from where I live). Oh well, I guess it was a no choice decision for me since I had to go home before Xmas day (for the Tagaytay wedding).
This is going to be a tough one.
Plus, it's workday the next day.
