What to be changed from March 2015?

Hi all,

I heard that the validity of JR pass would be changed from March 2015?
That is because of the start of service of the Hokuriku Shinkansen.

Do you have any idea about it?



Hello Khang,

The greatest change wil be the inclusion of the Hokuriku Shinkansen. These are all included in the JR Pass, however we may seem less limited express trains in the same region once the Shinkansen are taken into service. The exact change to service will be announced later.

Hope this helps,
