I'm going to Japan in May with my girlfriend, we are starting in Tokyo, then heading to Kyoto, Osaka and finishing in Hiroshima.
We are then flying back home from Tokyo 16th May at 8am. We are planning on riding the shinkansen on the 15th in the morning some time from Hiroshima to Tokyo where we will spend the night.
Is this a good idea? Obviously Japanese public transport is famed for its reliability but I can't help but think we are cutting it fine heading back up the day before the flight.
Has anyone got any advice or done a similar journey themselves?
Thanks for any replies!
