We arrive on 4th April Nagoya Chubu Centrair at 16:20 and plan to spend 4 nights in Nagoya. Thereafter I plan to spend 2 nights in Hiroshima and depart from Chubu on the 11th April at 17:35. I plan to travel to Hiroshima and back to NGO on 9th by Shinkanshen. I have not decided whether to purchase the JR Pass.

1) Can you advise the cost by shinkanshen to and from NGO to Hiroshima?

2) Can I use the JR pass for local travel in Nagoya and Hiroshima?

3) Can I use the JR pass to travel from Chubu Centrair to Nagoya City Centre?

4) Can you advise the most convenient place to stay in Nagoya?

5) Can you advise when do I have to leave Hiroshima on the 11th from Hiroshima to NGO and thereafter to Chubu Centrair?

Thank You

CHONG Thaw Sing, Mr

Hello there,

1.) The price of a one way ticket with the Shinkansen Nagoya - Hiroshima is ¥ 14,030.

2.) The JR Pass is usable for local travel to a certain extend in Nagoya and Hiroshima. Basically you can use all JR lines but other transport such as the metro is not included.

3.) Unfortunately the JR Pass can't be used for travel between Chubu Air and Nagoya station, as this part is traveled on the Meitetsu railway.

4.) Nagoya is pretty easy to get around in and staying in most areas is fine. It would make sense though to try and stay near the station if you want to visit other cities as well.

5.) The full trip Hiroshima - NGO takes about 4 hours, given that you would want to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before departure I would say try to be on the train around 11 in the morning.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Thank you for you answers that is very help ful. I have another question concerning the journey from Hiroshima to Nagoya Chubu airport. Can you tell me whether I can take the Meitetsu railway from the Shinkansen Station in Nagoya or whether I need to transfer to another station for the Meitetsu railway. If so, how far from the Shinkansen Nagoya station?

Hello Chong,

Nagoya (JR) station and the Meitetsu station are build side by side and there are signs everywhere. So transferring is not hard. Especially when you arrive from Chubu Airport.

Hope this helps too!
Daniel
