Tokyo to Osaka Trains Schedule

Did you know that the very first high-speed line in Japan was the Tokaido Shinkansen, connecting the country's capital with the charming city of Osaka? When the line entered the service in 1964, a bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka was something of a miracle. Now, over 50 years later, Shinkansen trains are still the pride of the Japanese railway. Fast and safe, they offer amazing onboard amenities and several travel classes to choose from. It takes about 2.5 hours to reach Osaka from Tokyo, making the city a great day trip destination.

Keep in mind that the tickets get sold out very fast, so it's smart to book them in advance (the Rail Ninja platform is at your service, offering even more information about the route as well as to buy Shinkansen train tickets in a matter of a few mouse clicks).
