Hi there,

Yes the route Tokyo - Toyama is completely covered by the JR Pass.

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your reply, can you tell me which JR line I could use, cause I search that I could use Joetsu Shinkansen and change at Echigo-Yuzawa, to Toyama , but from Echigoyuzawa to Toyama , the map show in yellow colour( extra charge) that means the JR pass does not cover. Is that right? Sorry to bother you.

Hi again!

Sorry you are right, there's an extra fare if you take that route.

Instead you could take the Shinkansen to Kyoto station and ride the Thunderbird Express from there for free with the JR Pass :)
