We have a report (just now) that JR-East will be providing shinkansen services during the afternoon of the 15th up to Nasushiobara in Tohoku. Please see this map) for reference.

Nasushiobara is 1 stop before Shin-Shirakawa and is a good way to get to the general area.

Here is the JR-East announcement in English: http://goo.gl/WbWCz
