Sunrise Seto/Sunrise Izumo night train and JR bus

Hi, I have a few questions:

1) How do I check for the timing for these 2 night trains in HyperDia? Is it fully cover by JR Pass?
2) Are there JR bus in Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Tokyo? Where to get more info?
3) Can I take SHINKANSEN HAYABUSA trains to Hakodate with JR Pass?

Thank you.


Hi there,

1.) Just use a late departure hour and it will pop up. A basic "Nobi Nobi" seat is free with the JR Pass.

2.) For validity, including buses - please see this website. Note that JR Buses are not everywhere available and in many places buses are part of the municipality government such as in Kyoto.

3.) Yes! The Hayabusa is completely covered.

Hope this helps!
