questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

kyoto to hiroshima and hiroshima to kyoto

Kyoto to Hiroshima and Hiroshima to Kyoto

Hi All,

I would like to know if I can use my JR Pass using the "Shinkansen En Hikari 491/493/495" to go from Kyoto directly to Hiroshima.

Furthermore I would like to know if I can use my JR Pass using the "Shinkansen Sakura" to go from Hiroshima to Shin Osaka and using the "Shinkansen Hikari" to go from Shin Osaka to Kyoto.

Thanks a lot,



Hi Maggy,

Both the Hikari and Sakura Super express trains are covered by the JR Pass, so you can travel to both Shin-Osaka, Kyoto and Hiroshima without worry!

Have a good trip!
