How much is the cost for the bullet train and what's the schedule?

From Kyoto to Tokyo should be the same, right?

Thanks!

I came to Mishima already, which city is more close than Tokyo where I can buy JR ticket to go there,
and than transfer to JR East, since I have bought the JR East ?

For Kyoto, you will need to leave the JR-East region and travel through JR-Central to JR-West where Kyoto lies.

If you are in Mishima, (which is already in the JR-Central region) I recommend you simply travel from there down to Kyoto direct. You will not be able to use the JR-East pass for this.

Hope this helps!

I'm leaving Kyoto, heading for North side.

The shortest connect to JR East region is Tokyo? Any other better choice?

Hi there!

If you check this map of JR-East region it does appear your nearest entry point is Tokyo itself. I recommend you travel to Tokyo first and then use the JR-East pass from there.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! I have found Yokohama station on JR East by zoom in the map.
