ShinOsaka to Hiroshima JR pass v. Nozumi

We have a JRpass. We will be travelling from ShinOsaka to Hiroshima and back with a stop in Himeji in September. What is the best way? Nozomi is way faster. How much will it cost us? What is the fastest JR pass eligible train?

Hi there,

You can use the Sakura Shinkansen from Shin-Osaka to Himeji and Hiroshima. The only difference with the Nozomi is that it makes a couple more stops on the way. Which is good, as not every Nozomi train stops at Himeji.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hello,

Can we use the Sakura Shinkansen with our JR pass? What, if any, extra cost will there be?
