Shinkansen from Osaka to Tokyo (JR Pass)


May I know what are the different lines (trains) covered by the unlimited JR pass? We will ride the shinkansen from Osaka to Tokyo and we plan to take the Nozomi train.

Please advise if this is covered by this pass.

Thank you.



Hi Ace,

To find out what trains are covered, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia this way you can find any route/timetable and more. It's a great tool for planning with the JR Pass. We also have a useful interactive map with all JR lines included.

Do note that Nozomi services are not included but you can use the Hikari Shinkansen instead.

Hope this helps,
