Kyoto to Hiroshima with JR rail pass

Hello, can I get to Hiroshima from Kyoto using the JR rail pass? I can only see Nozomi which the rail pass doesn't cover.


Hi there,

Yes, you can use the JR Pass between these two places. The route is as follows: take the Hikari Shinkansen from Kyoto station to Shin-Osaka, at Shin-Osaka transfer to the Sakura shinkansen bound for Hiroshima.

Hope this helps,
