questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo to/from hiroshima/

Tokyo to/from Hiroshima/

I will be traveling with my son to Hiroshima from Tokyo Station on November 16, and returning on November 25.
I do not think we will have time to make other stops in Japan during our visit, but I am not sure yet. Would it be better to purchase two round trip tickets (Hiroshima-Tokyo) or to buy 2 rail passes?


Hi there,

A one way ticket Tokyo - Hiroshima is ¥ 18,560 or double for a return. A 7 day JR Pass would give you good savings if you could make the return within 7 days, however I think it would be better in your case to buy normal tickets as your travel around for a longer period.

A 14 day JR Pass is something you could consider if you did an additional 9,270yen in travel as the 14 day JR Pass is ¥ 46,390 yen and a return Tokyo - Hiroshioma ¥ 37,120.

Hope this helps,
