Does the JR Pass includes bullet train?

Does buying the Japan Rail Pass includes as well the tickets to ride a bullet train going to Osaka?

Also do I need to reserve seats for bullet train?

Thanks.

Hi there,

The JR Pass covers all bullet train routes! Some train services (the Nozomi and Mizuho) are not included but you can take others instead, such as the Hikari and Sakura Shinkansen.

You can either take a reserved or non-reserved seat, though I would recommend making reservations in advance.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
