We hopped on and off these super whizzy trains throughout our three week trip around Japan.

For any train buffs out there, in total our bullet train trips were:

  • JR Shinkansen TOHOKU from Ueno Station to Utsunomiya Station, we then transferred to the JR Nikko Line to get to Nikko National park  
  • Shinkansen HIKARI train to Nagoya and then we transferred to the Ltd. Express (wide view) Hida to Takayama.

    The wide view Hida has deep windows that give you a panoramic view of the stunning scenery.

  • Ltd. Express (wide view) Hida from Takayama to Nagoya  
  • Shinkansen HIKARI from Nagoya to Shin Kobe  
  • Shinkansen SAKURA 553 from Shin Kobe to Hiroshima  
  • Shinkansen HIKARI 460 from Hiroshima to Shin Osaka  
  • Shinkansen HIKARI 504 Shin Osaka to Kyoto  
  • Shinkansen HIKARI 531 Kyoto – Shin Osaka.
