Hello Kitty Bullet Train

Hello Kitty Bullet Train

Traveling from Osaka to Hiroshima to visit Miyajima is a delightful journey filled with historical significance and natural beauty. Here's a video of my travel experience

My journey to Miyajima began with an unexpected twist—the Hello Kitty Shinkansen. This whimsical train transported me from Osaka to Hiroshima, promising a fun-filled adventure.

Stepping inside the Hello Kitty Shinkansen was like entering a dream. Hello Kitty-themed decor surrounded me, from the adorable curtains framing the windows to the seats featuring the iconic feline's likeness. It was a visual feast that kept me smiling throughout the journey.

As the train glided towards Hiroshima, I couldn't help but be captivated by the enchanting Hello Kitty world around me. I explored every corner of the train, including a dedicated Hello Kitty-themed car filled with merchandise and themed snacks. It was pure joy.

Upon arriving in Hiroshima, I continued my adventure to Miyajima. The JR Pass made the transition seamless, covering the ferry ride to the island and local trains.

how I traveled in Luxury with economical price in Japan 

The JR Pass was my golden ticket. It covered the cost of the Shinkansen (bullet train) ride from Osaka to Hiroshima, allowing me to travel in style without breaking the bank. The scenic journey itself was a luxurious treat (I bought the 1st class JR pass) as I gazed out at the picturesque landscapes whizzing past my window in style.

The JR Pass also provided the freedom I needed for my subsequent travels. It covered the ferry ride to Miyajima Island and local train journeys without the need to worry about the little details of purchasing individual tickets. This convenience not only saved me time but also ensured I could explore freely while keeping my budget intact.

I took the first class (Green Class) JR Pass ticket, and to me, it was worth to pay extra on top of the Ordinary class as I went everywhere with JR Pass, and it was very relaxing.

JR Pass official website to get more details.

There are other company selling these passes, but that failed once. So, I always buy from the official JR pass site.
