Bullet Trains


Does this rail pass include all the bullet trains?



Hi Jody,

The JR Pass covers all routes on which bullet trains travel. Note that there are different kinds of bullet trains, all are covered except for those designated as Nozomi and Mizuhou.

As a JR Pass user this is something you don't have to worry about, as you can just go to the ticket office tell the staff that you wish to travel somewhere and they will find the best route and trains for you.
