Hi there,

All these trains are included outside of the Nozomi between Kyoto - Tokyo, you can use the Hikari Shinkansen instead here.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

PS: You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for your feedback. However I do not quite understand what you mean that they are outside of Nozomi. I am looking to buy a JR Pass for the whole of Japan to cover these destinations. Just need to confirm that the trains/routes and timing are appropriate.
Thanks.

Hi again,

These routes are all covered by the JR Pass. However you have to use a different train between Kyoto - Tokyo on the last day, that is all :)
