Changing trains at Shin-Osaka


Travelling back from Hiroshima to Nagoya I have to change trains at Shin-Osaka, the timetable says I have 9 minutes in between the trains. Is it easy to catch my other train ????

Arrival platform is 20, departing platform is 25

Any help appreciated.



Hi John,

JR-West advise around 10minutes to transfer between Shinkansen at Shin-Osaka so you should be ok I think. Consulting this platform map you can see that 20 and 25 are pretty close together, but you will have to go down and come back up again to change platform.

Hope this helps!
