Hi Samuel Chong,

The JR Pass covers all lines on the JR network, including all Shinkansen (bullet trains), these lines are generally marked with JR on the front, such as the JR Yamanote line and Chuo line in Tokyo. Here is a map with all lines covered in Tokyo. Note that other kinds of transport such as the metro are not covered by the JR Pass.

Except for the Metro/Subway the other part not covered in your itinerary is the bus to around Takayama.

I hope this helps!
