Earliest/fastest way from Tokyo to Takayama, and back


I need to get from Tokyo to Takayama, on friday, 14th of April. What is the earliest and fast way i can get there, and what is the latest time i can leave in order to get back to Tokyo?

I heard the bus at 5.5 hours is the best way - but the website is in japanese, so i cant tell what's the earliest time the bus departs tokyo, and the latest time a bus departs Takayama back to tokyo!

I hope you can help,

Hi. I checked Bus schedule is as follows.
From Shinjuku to Takayama (1)8:00 (2)9:00 (3)14:30 (4)16:00
From Takayama to Shinjuku (1)6:30 (2)8:00 (3)11:00 *via Nakatsugawa (4)13:30 (5)15:30
But the web site says 1st & 2nd from Shinjuku are already fully booked.

There is another option, but it would exceed your budget...
From Shinjuku you can take a JR Chuo line express train "Azusa".
At Matsumoto station (in Nagano Prefecture) you get on a express bus.

Good luck.
