sleeper service

Sleeper service

I've already purchased my jr pass,as travelling to Japan on 01/04/2016
But please could you tell me if there is a sleeper route from Mount Fuji to Hiroshima ?
Or a sleeper service from Tokyo to Hiroshima ?
Any help is much appreciated,thank you.....


Hi there,

I am afraid that there are no sleeper trains going to Japan. In general there are no sleeper trains operating in Japan. We have a blog post here about them.

I think your best option would be to travel from Tokyo to Hiroshima using the Shinkansen by day.

Hope this helps,
