What trains are included with JR Pass?

If I buy a JR pass which trains does it include? Bullet (Shinkansen), NOZOMI / MIZUHO / HAYABUSA (SHINKANSEN), limited express, express, liner, Sleeper Limited Express, Sleeper Express, Ordinary Train, Japan Railway (JR), & Private Railway are all listed on the Hyperdia website


Hi there!

All JR trains except for Nozomi and Mizuho class shinkansen are included with the JR Pass. This includes all other bullet train classes such as Hayabusa, Sakura, Hikari and so on.

In general, on Hyperdia if you deselect the NOZOMI and private railway options you can get a good idea of valid routes, but you can learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
