Getting To Hiroshima, Hiroshima: 17 reviews and 28 photos

by kiwigal_1

Hiroshima has a Shinkansen station which is connected to Osaka and Tokyo in the north and Fukuoka in the south. The closest International Airport would be either Fukuoka or Osaka.

The Shinkansen is by far the most convenient way to travel around Japan. Unfortunately it isn't very cheap! Luckily there is a Japan JR Rail Pass available to foreign travellers. See the JR East website for details:

It must be bought abroad and stamped in Japan before you can use it. There are several options including one week (unlimited JR travel except for the super fast Nozomi service), two week, JR East and JR West passes. Check with your local travel agent for the best option or click on the link to see for yourself!

Here is a link to a very cool page that lets you see the routing between cities/stations/ports within Japan. It will tell you the route and includes the cost and time. http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/norikae/.
