I"m interested in traveling to Ueda from Nagano by Rokumon train, a special train operated by Shinano railway. Shinano railway used to be a part of JR. Does JR pass cover Shinano railway?

Hi there,

The Shinano Railway is a private railway company and does not accept the JR Pass.

A normal ticket will be required here.
