Cheap ways to get to Hiroshima from Nagoya


I will be arriving in Nagoya Chubu Airport (NGO) on Apr. 16, 2014 in the morning. I plan to go straight from Nagoya to Hiroshima. What is the cheap and affordable way to get there?

Thanks a lot,


Hi Clara,

The route Nagoya - Hiroshima is covered by the JR Pass and it would be easy to make saving with a JR Pass if you plan on doing additional travel.

Alternatively you could look at using a night bus to travel between Nagoya - Hiroshima. They are generally cheaper than rail travel and you can save on accommodation costs as well. However I usually would not recommend them, because it can be hard to sleep and you lose the next day due to fatigue. Ticket prices are different depending on the company, day of travel and how far you book in advance.

For reference a normal Nagoya - Hiroshima is Shinkansen ticket is 13,830 yen.

I hope this helps!

Thank you, Daniel-san. Appreciate your prompt response. I am thinking to take an overnight bus (perhaps Willer express) to save the cost of a hotel.
