Nozomi

Does anyone know why it is not possible to use a JR pass on the NOZOMI and how else would one get from Tokyo to Osaka quickly?

Hi there,

This is due to the pricing policy of JR Central, you can use the Hikari Shinkansen instead of the Nozomi. The Hikari Shinkansen travels the same route but makes a couple more stops on the way.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
