JR Pass on Bus/ Bullet trains

Hi, Can the JR pass be used on all bus (Tokyo and Kyoto) and ferry services as well in addition to trains. Is bullet train also covered by JR pass. thanks

Hello!
I think the JRpass is valid only for the Miyajima ferry, and not for all buses in Tokyo and Kyoto.
To check, you can go on Hyperdia and check the box "Japan Railway" only.

Hi there,

Dounia summed it up nicely! Just to confirm, the JR Pass is also valid on the Shinkansen (bullet trains).
