Is it possible that I spend a day trip from Hiroshima to Nagasaki and back to Hiroshima within the same day with the JR Pass?
If yes, please advice the train connection including a visit to the Nagasaki Peace Memorial Hall and nearby attractions.

Thank you.

Hi there,

Yes, this is possible. The route looks like this and has one transfer at Hakata station. The JR Pass covers the full route.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel

How about the return trip? It seem like it is travel on Nozomi type of Shinkansen, does it cover by JR Pass?

In the HyperDia, there appear a fare price and a seat price, how does it apply?

Cheer!!

Hi Again,

You can use the Sakura Shinkansen to Hakata using the JR Pass.

The full route is covered by the JR Pass, so no need to worry about the prices.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

I got it. I have learned from you in a different chat to remove the Nozomi on the HyperDia search.

You are really a great help to me!!

Many thanks Daniel.
Cheer!!
