Can use the JR Pass on the Nozomi from Hiroshima to Tokyo?

Hello, I am going to travel to Japan from Sep 19 thorugh Sep 26. I need to travel from Hiroshima to Nara and then to Kyoto and back to Hiroshima. After then Form Hiroshima to Tokyo and to Narita.


Hi there,

The Nozomi train is not included. You can use the Hikari or Sakura Shinkansen instead, they travel the same route as the Nozomi but make a couple more stops on the way.

Hope this helps!
