train or bus schedules

Hi! I am starting to finalize my trip and I am wondering if someone can help me with train/bus schedules so I can plan better. I am planning to go:

1) Hiroshima to Izumo

2) Izumo to Yamaguchi shin

3) Yamaguchi shin to Fukuoka

4) Fukuoka to Kyoto

Thank you!

Thank you but I was wondering if there were tables that show all the different times so I could pick what would work better for us. Is there such a thing?

After you do your search on www.hyperdia.com, hit the link for "interval timetable" to get a schedule for that particular route. But if you have to make transfers, this can be a tedious research process. It might be easier to just use the schedule results that come up from hyperdia when you enter various departure times.

ok. thanks. But isn't there an earlier option out of Hiroshima to Izumo. Is there a bus? I really would like to get there early.

current JR Chugoku Highway Bus timetable from Hiroshima Station shinkansen exit to IzumoShi station

7:45 9:00 10:45 12:25 14:25 15:25 16:40 17:28 18:55

It takes between 3hrs10 - 3hrs 22mins.

so the earliest you'll get to Izumo City is 10.55am. The 10.45am bus continues all the way to Izumo Taisha
