From Kyoto to Tokyo Sunday Hikari trains

I am planning a trip from Kyoto to Tokyo on Sunday October 9 using JR pass, but could not find any morning Hikarii trains between 8am and 10am on hyperdia.com. The earliest train available is at 10:33am.

However on the official JR Central site http://english.jr-central.co.jp/info/timetable/ there are at least 4 trains at the required timeframe - Hikary 512, 460, 514 and 462.
Same trains are also listed on http://www.shinkansen.co.jp/jikoku_hyo/en/sanyou/suh_kyoto.html

Could someone help to find out which site is more accurate for that specific date?

Thank you in advance!

Hi there,

I looked into this but am not sure what's going on with Hyperdia.

Using other planning websites, the Hikari does look to be in service.

I used this JP website, route 3 is the Hikari. Same at the JR East timetable, the blue are the Hikari lines.

However I would recommend confirming in Japan the moment that you can reserve tickets, in order to avoid any surprises.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
