from Kyoto Station in Kyoto to Tamachi Station in Tokyo


I have the JR pass and am traveling from Kyoto at kyoto station to Tokyo to Tamachi station and I want to take the shinkansen. Does the Hikari shinkansen run at this Kyoto station to Tokyo Tamachi station so that I can utilize the JR pass?

Thank you!



Hello Ann,

You can use Hikari Shinkansen from Kyoto to Tokyo station, from there you can use local trains to Tamachi station.

Hope this helps,
