Hi Peter,

Once you are off the plane, you take a monorail to the immigration 
area.  There is a line for foreigners on the right-hand side.  Once 
you are cleared, you collect your luggage and go through 
Customs.  That should take around 45 minutes.

After customs, take the stairs to the first floor, then turn left and 
walk up to the JR (train) office.  There is a green sign.  But a 
ticket for Hiroshima.  You will be given three tickets the size of 
credit cards.  One is for the fare from Kansai Airport to the 
Hiroshima City Zone and the other two are for the two legs.   You can 
get a reserved seat.  The total cost is 12,300/- JPY.  There was 9 
minutes between arriving in Shinosaka and catching the Shinkansen 
Hikari.  See whether you need a longer duration before you purchase 
the train ticket.

Ask the person at the JR office for the track number of your train to 
Shinosaka.  It may be Track 4.  The gates are opposite the JR 
Office.  Once the train arrives, find your car number and your 
seat.  There will be a few stops before Shinosaka.  The train station 
are announced in English and there is also a sign in English.  The 
ride to Shinosaka takes 53 minutes.  The time of departure and time 
of arrival is printed on the ticket.

Once in Shinosaka, see the overhead monitors for the track number for 
the train you are catching.  It may be Track 21 or 22.  You need to 
go up one level to catch the train to Hiroshima.

Once you arrive at Hiroshima Station, you need to go downstairs to 
proceed to the exit.  Hand in your tickets to the attendant, then 
proceed to the left side to exit the station.  You will see the Hotel 
Granvia on the left.  The taxi stand is on the right.  The taxi ride 
is less than 1500 JPY.
