Hi Bee,

Taking the Shinkansen bullet train from Shinjuku to Yokohama is not the fastest way, as there are fast local direct lines between them, such as the JR Shonan-SHinjuku line.

If you do want to take the Shinkansen, then take the Chuo line to Tokyo station or Yamanote line to Shinagawa station and get on bullet train there to Yokohama. Then local transport, the Minato Mirai line to the bay area (not included in the pass).

Kind regards.
