Does the pass cover all lines between Tokyo-Kyoto-Hiroshima-Osaka?

We are purchasing the out of country JR Pass. What shinkansens can we use to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto to Hiroshima to Osaka?
Thanks!

Hi there!

The entire route is covered by the JR Pass, first take the Hikari Shinkansen from Kyoto station to Shin-Osaka. Here you can transfer to the Sakura Shinkansen bound for Hiroshima.

Here's a map with the route so you can get an idea of what's involved.

Hope this helps!

Thank you.

Will I be able to get a hard copy of this map when I book my travel? Or should I print this before I go?

I am not sure if you can get a map when you make your bookings and it may be better to make a print before you travel.
