  • JR West Rail Pass

    by euskaldun Updated Oct 13, 2010

    The stretch Osaka-Kyoto is not covered by the West Rail Pass, as it is managed by JR Central. You can either buy a ticket for that stretch in advance or at the station, before you leave the shinkansen area (but I am not 100 % sure of this latter possibility).

    Shimanami Kaido

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The trip along the Shimanami Kaido from Shikoku is a good one, as the road goes through numerous islands on the way to Hiroshima prefecture.

    Ikuchijima and Innoshima are two islands in Hiroshima prefecture that are accessible on this road.

    The Shinkansen

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hiroshima is one of the stops of the Shinkansen, so it's easy to get to. It is about 30 minutes from Okayama station, 1 hour from Kobe, and 6 hours from Tokyo. The ride is smooth, so even from Tokyo, it's not bad!

    The Other Streetcar City

    Take the streetcar in and around Hiroshima. It is very cheap, but if you buy a pass at the train station it is even cheaper! It is a neat experience.
