questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

shinagawa station to kyoto

Shinagawa station to Kyoto

I would like to know which line I should take from the Shinagawa station to Kyoto. Google maps shows only the Nozomi train but the JR pass does not include Nozomi. I was told that the Hikari and Kodama train also stops at Shinagawa but Google maps does not show this as an option. Please advise.
Thank you,


Hi Anna,

I recommend using instead of Google Maps. As Google maps does not show Hikari trains, which are covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
