questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo -> osaka -> kyoto

Tokyo -> Osaka -> Kyoto

Hello,

I'm abit confused over the JR rail pass coverage.
Is there any website/information i can get to know for the JR rail pass coverage within this 3 region?
Also, i'm aware the 'Nozumi' line is not covered by JR rail pass. So is there any shinkansen line that is covered by the pass?

Thanks :)

Hi there,

All Shinkansen lines are covered by the JR Pass, however there are some trains services on these lines that are not included, these are the Nozomi and Mizuho services. You can take other trains, such as the Hikari and Sakura are included. These travel the exact same route but make a couple more stops on the way.

Hope this helps!
Daniel
