Available trains for Tokyo to Hiroshima?

Hello, I will be traveling to Japan in the August of 2015. I will be traveling from Tokyo to Osaka, and Osaka to Hiroshima before traveling back to Tokyo for the remainder of my stay. If I were to order a green car ticket, would I only be allowed to ride the Hikari train, or is it available for more than just that train?




Hi Ryan,

The JR Pass, both Green and Orinary are valid on the Hikari and Sakura Shinkansen between Hiroshima and Tokyo. The Nozomi unfortunately is not included.

Hope this helps,
