shinkansen kyoto to shinagawa

Shinkansen Kyoto to Shinagawa

Does the JR pass work on this train, and if so are advance reservations needed?


Hi there,

The JR Pass covers this route and you can make reservations in advance. It is not always needed though.

I recommend doing so 1-2 days if you travel in the weekend or during busy travel seasons.
