I will be travelling from Tokyo to Hiroshima on 29/08/18. How much time does the bullet train take to cover this distance? Also, is it a direct train? Thirdly, what is the frequency. Are there night trains on this route.

After staying 1 night in Hiroshima on 30/08/18 I'll be travelling from there to Kyoto. Wanted to know time taken for the journey & frequency.

Please help!!

Hi there,

For travel times, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia this way you can find any route/timetable and more. It's a great tool for planning with the JR Pass. We also have a useful interactive map with all JR lines included.

Hope this helps,
