I'll travel to Tokyo during the first 2 weeks of November.
What's the fastest and not too much expensive way to reach Kyoto from Tokyo?
As reported here: a Shinkansen ticket form Tokyo to Kyoto is around 13,200 yen.
I also discovered that Japanican offers a two ways plus a night in a 3 star hotel single room for 25,900 yen (in November).
Do you know whether an economic two way ticket exist or not? Otherwise, do you know better connections?
