Alternative route

Hi, may i know is JR pass include for ride shinkansen nozomi? If not,may i know other alternative to travel from nagoya to tokyo by using the JR pass since the fastest way to go to tokyo from nagoya is by nozomi ..thank u


Hi there,

While the Nozomi is not included, you can use any other train service on the same route. Such as the Hikari, Sakura and Kodama Shinkansen.

The time difference with the Nozomi is minimal. For instance Tokyo - Nagoya will only take a couple more minutes.

Hope this helps,
