Hiroshima Airport to Kyoto, which pass can I get?

Hi all,

I am going for a short trip to Hiroshima/Kyoto. This is the plan:

12 November, 5.10 PM: Arrive at Hiroshima Airport
Take transportation directly from the Airport to Kyoto (around 7 PM).
13 and 14 November: stay in Kyoto
15 November: Leave Kyoto in the early morning for Hiroshima (around 7 am), sightseeing half a day in Hiroshima and then take the plane back from Hiroshima airport at 5 pm.

Does the above itinerary make sense and which pass should I buy and which trains/busses? Thank you in advance!


Hi there,

For a one way Kyoto - Hiroshima, I would simply buy a normal rail ticket. There is not really a pass that would help you make savings just for this. Most need a little bit more travel.

You can buy day passes for the metro/bus in Kyoto.

Hope this helps,
