osaka to hiroshima and vice versa

osaka to hiroshima and vice versa

id be in japan this month, and i have a free day to explore hiroshima.

ive read abt the japan sanyo shikoku kyushu pass
is it advisable to get this pass if i plan to visit hiroshima
ive read in some posts that the pass could be used for trains goins to miyajima as well as for the ferry ride?

kindly enlighten on this , thank you !


Hi there!

A shinkansen return Osaka - Hiroshima will set you back around ¥ 19,500

A 4 day Sanyo Pass is ¥ 20,000 is this may be interesting if you would do more travel with it, It also covers the Ferry to Miyajima (which is ¥ 1,140 for a return from Hiroshima without the pass).

You may also be interested in the Nation wide JR Pass which is valid for 7 days and ¥ 28,300 which all together is a much better deal. You could even hit up Tokyo if you have an other free day!

I hope this helps!
