I am trying to figure out how to get to Kyoto from Shibuya, Tokyo. I am not understanding how to or where to get the shinkansen (bullet train) to go to Kyoto. If you guys could help me out it would really help me out.

Hi there,

Shinkansen to Kyoto depart from Tokyo and Shinagawa stations. You can take the JR Yamanote line to either of these stations from Shibuya.

The complete route is covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
