Hi there,

The route would look as follows: Take the Haruka Express from Kansai Airport to Shin-Osaka, from there the Shinkansen run to Tokyo station.

Here is an example route using the JR Pass.

Hi.. if like that the 7-day JR pass can't be use for Shinkansen Nozomi..., is it still worth to buy for this pass? If in such case, I checked the timetable of the train, to arrive in Tokyo the onext the same night is only Nozomi. I wonder if it worth to buy this 7 days Jr pass. I'm planning to travel to the below places.. from kansai airport--> tokyo --> kyoto--> Osaka.

Tokyo : disneysea, tokyo tower, shibazakura festival, 5th station mount fuji, shibuya.
Kyoto : fushimi inari, gion, sagano-arashimaya bamboo groove, nishiki market
Osaka : dontoburi, namba, osaka castle, umeda sky bulging.

If I travel from Kansai--> tokyo by Nozomi, then plus I buy 7-day Jr pass.. does this worth from the whole trip?

Hi there,

You can however use the Hikari train instead of the Nozomi using the JR Pass.

What time did you look at?

I'm arriving at 5.40pm.. the only train I can board on is around 7pm++ and arriving Tokyo around 9.30pm++. So I'm wondering can I rush for the 7pm train or not. As shown from the hyperdia search, it shown there is nozomi train.
