Tokyo to Kyoto by train

I am staying in Tokyo in the Shinjuku area of the city. How do I go about getting a train to Kyoto and then onto Nara on the JR line. Thanks

Hi there,

Here's a simple itinerary from Shinjuku to Nara via Kyoto that's valid for the JR Pass.

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
