JR routing for a trip from Nara to Hakone

We plan to be in Nara on October 26 and would like to travel to Hakone that day. What is the best routing?


Hi there,

The best route is to take the train from Nara to Kyoto and board the Shinkansen there to Odawara, from where you can access the rest of Hakone.

You can find the route in Hyperdia here.

I hope this helps,
