Tokyo - Kyoto - Hiroshima

Hi!

I am planning on getting the JR Pass to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto to Hiroshima and back. Which Shinkansen can use the JR Pass on? I am confused re the Nozomi exception on the pass.

Thanks!

Hi there,

You can use the Hikari and Sakura Shinkansen to travel to Hiroshima and back. Both are covered by the JR Pass. Especially the Sakura is nice to travel on.

Hope this helps!
