Takayama to Ebisu Tokyo

Hello Daniel,

For travel from Takayama to Ebisu (Tokyo), I found the following train itinerary. When we take the JR Yamanote Line in Shinagawa, do we get off in Osaki and transfer or stay on the same train for continued travel to Ebisu (Tokyo)?

11:24 Takayama - LTD EXP (Wide View) HIDA 8
14:02 Arrive in Nagoya
14:34 Depart on SHINKANSEN HIKARI 470
16:33 Arrive in Shinagawa
16:43 Depart on JR YAMANOTE LINE (Outer Loop)
16:45 Arrive in Osaki
16:46 Depart on JR YAMANOTE LINE (Outer Loop)
16:53 Arrive in Ebisu (Tokyo)


Hi there,

The Yamanote line makes a loop and you can stay on the same train to Ebisu :)

Hope this helps,


You've been a great help. Thank you so much for your assistance.
