Hello there,

Basically all lines with JR in front of them. Additionally Shinkansen and ltd. express trains such as the Narita Express are also included in the JR Pass. Additionally the Tokyo Monorail is also included.

The following lines are not included, but you can use a Suica or any other IC card on them. You can also use the JR to Odawara instead of the Hakone Tozan Railway.

The following lines are not included:

Hakone Tozan Railway for ODAWARA
Toei Subway Asakusa Line for KEISEI-TAKASAGO
Toei Subway Odeo Line
Toei Subway Oedo Line for HIKARIGAOKA
Toei Subway Oedo Line for TOCHOMAE
Keihan Main Line Sub-Exp
Osaka City Subway Midosuji Line
Osaka City Subway NagahoriTsurumiryokuchi Line
Osaka City Subway Sennichimae Line
Tokyu Toyoko/Minatomirai Line Exp. for MOTOMACHI-CHUKAGAI
Tokyu Toyoko/Minatomirai Line Ltd. Exp. for KAWAGOESHI
Yurikamome for Toyosu
