questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

takayama to shinagawa

Takayama to shinagawa


We will travel to shinagawa from Takayama on 14 Dec 2016.

I have checked from hyperdia and found out that most of the Shinkansen services in the afternoon are Nozomi, except 1.31pm service. As we are holding JR pass, the only option is 1.30pm which will depart from Takayama.

From Hyperdia, the route result returned:-
1.31 Takayama (Hida 12)-Gifu-Nagoya(Hikari)-Shinagawa
1.31 Takayama(Hida 12)-Nagoya (nozomi)-Shinagawa

My question is can I take Hida 12 to Nagoya instead to Gifu, then take Hikari 526 which will depart at 4:27pm from Nagoya?

Thank you.
