Hi There,

But JR Pass website do not mention about Tohoku Shinkansen on the no go list. I am confused. Because I wan to go for a day trip to Hirosaki for Cherry Blossom view and return to tokyo need fast trains. i have also bokked my JR pass. Please advise th epass will cover me or not? Thanks.


Hi there,

All the Tohoku Shinkansen are covered by the JR Pass, including the Hayabusa train.

Enjoy the ride!
