How many bullet train trips??

How many bullet train trips??

Hello, I am in Japan at the moment using my train pass and having a blast. I have noticed that the train pass has been stamped for the two Shinkansen trips I have been on (Tokyo-Kyoto) and back. Is this counting down the number of shinkansen trips I can take?Is there any limit ti the number of Shinkansen trips I can do on my 7 day pass as I would like to do another return trip to Kyoto before my pass expires?

Thanks Iain

Hi Iain!

Great to hear you're having a good time :)

There is no limit on the number of shinkansen trips you can do with the JR Pass, so you are free to go back to Kyoto as much as you'd like :)

Enjoy the rest of your trip!
