Hi there,

Will you return to Tokyo within the 7-day validity period of the JR Pass? Then it would be really worth it!

As you know, you can't use the Nozomi train service, but you can use the Hikari train service on the same route. The train is the same, but makes a couple more stops along the way. The Thunderbird and Hokuriku Shinkansen are also covered by the JR Pass.

Kind regards,
