From Sunroute Plaza hotel Shinjuku to Kyoto Station

Which JR Shinkansen can I take using the JR pass travelling from Shinjuku Station to Kyoto Station, and the easiest
and more convenient station to embark as we have luggage so to drag along.



Hello there,

First take the JR Chuo line from Shinjuku station to Tokyo station. Here you can board the Hikari Shinkansen bound for Kyoto and Osaka. It's the quickest route using the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
