questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

Can i use JR west sanyo area pass to ride the nozomi train from osaka to tokyo?

I read that you can use this JR pass for all the nozomi between osaka and hakata. Does that mean originating from these stations or rides within these area?

If it's the latter which JR pass enables us to ride the nozomi from shinosaka to tokyo? Because i read that the JR pass can't be used for nozomi.

Hi there,

The Sanyo pass is only valid for the "Sanyo Shinkansen" this means the area between Hakata - Shin-Osaka. I would recommend using the JR Pass instead as it does cover the entire route, you may not be able to use the Nozomi but the time difference is minor and you can use the Sakura / Hikari Shinkansen instead.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
