Hiroshima to Kanazawa (and back) using JR pass

HI! A couple of questions

  1. How do i get to Kanazawa from Hiroshima using my JR pass? The only way that hyperdia is suggesting includes the Nozomi Shinkansen from Hiroshima to Shin-Osaka which i know isn't included in the JR pass.

  2. Same deal for Kyoto to Hiroshima (although i know there is a way that uses a JR rapid + the sakura shinkansen) but just wanted to check this was legit

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!



Hi there,

1.) This is no problem, you can take any other Shinkansen train, expect the Nozomi/Mizuho service.

Here's how to use the JR Pass from Kanazawa - Hiroshima.

2.) Here's the route from Kyoto - Hiroshima.

Hope these help!
