Travelling from Hiroshima to Kyoto, we need to change at SHIN-KOBE. Trian for Kyoto will be shinkanse Hikari 520. Departs 10 minutes after we arrive on platform. How will we know which Shinkans is the correct one for us to board? Thanks for help.

Hi there,

The best advice is I can give you is to follow the signs on the station. These are all clear and will show what train and track to depart from. Then once you are at the tracks, there will also be plenty of electronic signs that tell you what train is next, also in English.

Kind regards,
