Nara to Tokyo Travel

I am travelling from Nara a a day stay back to Tokyo. What trains do I take and how long is the journey? Thanks

Hi there :)

If you're using a JR Pass you can use any of the Hikari class bullet trains that travel on the Tokaido Shinkansen from Kyoto up to Tokyo, travelling to Kyoto by normal local express JR train. The total trip should take just under 4 hours, and here's a selection of itineraries for reference.

Hope this helps!
