Online reservations from Hakata to Kyoto are not available. You can make reservations at any JR ticket office after your arrival in Japan. Trains on this route run frequently and tickets are usually available on the day of travel. We recommend making reservations a day or two in advance.

We wish to do the reverse (Kyoto to Hakata), is it possible to book one through ticket, or will we need to make 2 separate bookings?  How long should I leave between arriving at Shin-Osaka and departing from there for Hakata?  Thanks

There are some Nozomi shinkansen services that go from Kyoto to Hakata. Please note that Nozomi is not covered by the Japan Rail Pass.

If you do not plan to use the Japan Rail Pass you can take Nozomi all the way to Hakata without any transfers.

If you do plan to use the Japan Rail Pass you will need to take Hikari from Kyoto to Shin-Osaka and then transfer to Sakura to continue to Hakata. 

Transfers can be made in 10 minutes, but we'd recommend 20 to 30 minutes transfer time if you are not familiar with the station layout.

Visit Hyperdia for the train schedules on your travel date and time to find the direct Nozomi services.
