Best way from Kyoto to Tokyo with jr pass

Hi

I wondered which is the best way to get from Kyoto to Tokyo?

I have looked on Hyperdia and get a very convoluted and many changes itinerary!!

Is there any way of upgrading to the Nozomi for this trip with the JR pass?? I see that on Hyperdia this is a direct route.

Many thanks

Tony

Hi Tony,

It's also a direct bullet train trip on the hikari bullet service for jr pass holders. Here's a sample itinerary for you. You sometimes need to adjust the options on hypedia for use with a japan rail pass so we have a video blog on the right settings you need here.

As a jrpass holder you will not be able to use the nozomi services unless you pay the full fare, but in practice this should not be neccesary as there are always alternative bullets.

Hope this helps!
