FAQ japan Rail Pass General

Q. Japan rail pass covers all the major routes on the bullet trains?

Just wondering if the rail pass covers you for all the major routes on the bullet trains, and is it reasonably obvious what trains we will be able to use?

I imagine that it would probably be worthwhile having it if we intend to visit four or five places in the two weeks we are there?

faq Japan rail pass will be valid on most bullet and non-bullet JR operated trains except for Nozomi and Mizuho. In place, you can use alternative bullet trains such as Hikari, Sakura, etc.

If you can let us know the cities you are planning to visit, we can check further details.
