Hello! Im traveling to Okayama january 2016, and I would like to know the station name, what shinkansen train I must take, or how can I buy the ticket from Tokyo.
And to which station on Tokyo I have to go to take the correct shinkansen to Okayama.

Im very confused, this is going to be my first time on Japan.

Thank you !!!

Hi there,

Well both Okayama and Tokyo have Shinkansen stations by the same name. Going from Tokyo - Okayama with the JR Pass will most likely be Tokyo - ShinOsaka (transfer) - Okayama.
