Tokyo to Hiroshima 10th December to 11th December

Hi There.
Dear JR representative san,

I will be in Tokyo on 9th December night.

I want to travel to Hiroshima on 9th night itself or 10th early morning.
Could you please suggest the following :
1. Shinkansen time at Tokyo Station.
2. Travel time from Tokyo to Hiroshima.
3. Any other place that I may visit on the way - during return journey (of historical improtance, nature, wild life).
4. Cost for JR pass .
5. Which pass should I purchase.

Hi there,

For travel times, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia this way you can find any route/timetable and more. It's a great tool for planning with the JR Pass. We also have a useful interactive map with all JR lines included.

Travel to Hiroshima is quite costly without a JR Pass and I would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for this trip.

Hope this helps,
