Take Shinkansen Hikari at Hakata station. Takes abour an hour to Hiroshima.
Thank you for your information.
We checked the website. What we cannot understand is that it takes 5 hrs?
A previous posting said it only took 1 hr using the Hikari?
Please help us?
I think maybe you did not UNCHECK the box that says "limited express" and the system plugged you into a run that stops at many stations. I just ran it again and it seems to take about 1 hour, 10 minutes on the Hikari train, Kodama train takes over 2 hours because it stops more often.
So, on the web site, enter start at Hiroshima, Destination Hakata. Uncheck airlines, check shinkansen, uncheck Nozomi, uncheck limited express.
See if this link works, it's the results I got when I did it:
