questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

Hokuriku Shinkansen

Can I use JR Rail Pass for Kagayaki Shinkansen and Hakutaka Shinkansen for Tokyo to Kanazawa? Does the 特急料金 is included in Ordinary Class Japan Rail pass? and also do the 特急料金 and グリーン料金 are included in Green Class Japan Rail pass? Or do I need to pay extra for that?

Thank you!

Hi Yvonne Hsueh Nhan,

I believe we already had contact about this on Facebook.

Even so, all these charges are covered by the JR Pass and you don't have to pay anything. You do of course require a Green Class JR Pass to travel in Green Class.

Hope this helps,
