change timing of shinkansen

Change timing of Shinkansen

We have JR pass for this week. Today we got Shinkansen ticket from Hiroshima to Kyoto for tomorrow using our JR Pass. We planned to take Sakura 544 at 10.53 and change to Hikari in Shin-Kobe at 12.25. We find it early now and would like to change it to a later train. How can we change the timing? Can we make the change online or can wesimply go later and buy new tickets with our JR Pass? Thanks


Hi there,

Yes you can change your reserved tickets at any time. Just go to the ticket window at any JR station and tell the staff you wish to make a change.

Have a good trip!
