Hi there,

All of your itinerary is covered by the JR Pass, and since you’ll be using the Shinkansen multiple times I would recommend purchasing a JR Pass.

Hope this helps!

Hi Alexis,

Thank you for your help. I saw that I cannot reserve seats for my trip until I land and I must do it in person. Is this true? If so, where is the JR office location in Hiroshima where I can reserve seats for my trains throughout my trip?

Thank you!
