Tokyo to Kyoto to Ise, Mie to Kyoto to Hiroshima to Tokyo plus day trips

We are buying a 14 day JR pass which will be validated 4 days in when we travel to Kyoto in order we can travel back from Hiroshima using the JR Pass. As it is a long journey from Hiroshima to Tokyo and will be on a Saturday can we reserve seats and will they cost extra. Many thanks.


Hi there!

Seat reservations are free of charge and you can make them the moment that you are in Japan and have activated your JR Pass. You could reserve your seats from Hiroshima - Tokyo right away after activating your JR Pass making sure that you have seating together.

Hope this helps!
