Insider Travel Tips

  • 3 types of bullet trains (shinkansen) run between Kyoto and Tokyo. "Nozomi" takes only 2 hours 20 minutes, with 3 stops. "Hikari" makes 9 intermediate stops and "Kodama" is slowest with 14 stops.
  • Best to reserve seats on bullet trains during commuter hours & holidays. Go to a "green window" (midori no madoguchi) at major JR stations. Note: each train has 3 cars of unreserved seats at front or back.
