Travelling from Tokyo to Kyoto

Hello there,
Myself and my girlfriend are travelling to Kyoto from Tokyo tomorrow morning and wondered if you could tell us what is the best route to use and how long would it take us?
Many thanks


Hi Matthew,

It is quite easy, you can take a direct bullet train from Tokyo station to Kyoto. The route takes about 160min.

Does that help?
