Getting Tokyo to Kumamoto

We're going to get a two-week pass and arriving in Narita on a Friday. If we take the train to Tokyo Station, can we get to Kumamoto via Shinkansen?


Hello there,

Yes you can use the Shinkansen all the way from Tokyo - Kumamoto. Just keep in mind that you may have to transfer trains once at Shin-Osaka and during off times also at Hakata (Fukuoka) station.

The entire route is covered by the JR Pass.
