Thanks for your response Daniel. I assume that bullet train, if available for any above mentioned route, doesn't include in JR Pass. is it correct?

Many thanks

Hi again!

You can use the bullet train wherever available. Some bullet train services (The Nozomi and Mizuho) are not covered but you can take any other service instead. These travel the same route but make a couple more stops on the way.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Could you please advise what other train should I take from Tokyo-Nagoya instead of Nozomi.

Thanks

Hi VT,

You can use the Hikari Shinkansen instead. There is at least on service every 30min departing from Tokyo.
