Suresh, I believe your comparison is quite fair. Cabin accomodation is
essentially the same (same car serve as Nozomi and as Hikari).

The only minor difference is that N-700 series cars don't serve as
Hikari except early morning and late evening; In N-700, you have 100V
AC power access in all window seats for your laptop. Please enjoy the
travel to Hiroshima.
