Q. Tokyo – Kyoto, train timetable

How often the train (bullet train?) runs between Tokyo and Kyoto? I am travelling end of the year, so I worry if I can get a seat…

faq The valid bullet train for JR pass holder is ‘Hikari’ or ‘Kodama’ on this route. Hikari has less stops than Kodama so we recommend you to take ‘Hikari’ bullet train. The first train departs Tokyo at 06:26 and it operates about every 30mins. The last train departs Tokyo at 20:03 and arrives Kyoto at 23:02.
Please note the train time schedule is as of Oct12. Please check again before you travel.
