Shinkansen from Tokyo to Nagoya

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

My destination is Nagoya. If I take Narita express to Tokyo station and then take Shinkansen bullet train to Nagoya. 

1)Can I use JR pass for hikari or kodama train (understand jr pass not available for Nozomi train) ? If not available for Jr pass, how much for the cost

2)Starting may 2020, if I have bigger luggage, I have to make seat reservation. Do I need to pay extra cost if using Jr pass? If yes, can go to jr ticket office for exchange ticket and pay seat reservation cost? 

After traveling Nagoya, I will be go to Yokohama, osanbashi pier. 

3) can I take Shinkansen bullet train and stop at shin-Yokohama station and take metro to Osanbashi pier?

4) do I need to reserve the seat as well. 

 

Thanks

Hi Chilly,
 
About your doubts:
 
1) Yes, you can use your JR Pass for Hikari and Kodama trains. The only trains that you can't take with this pass are Nozomi and Mizuho Shinkansen bullet trains: https://www.jrailpass.com/faq/nozomi-mizuho-shinkansen.  
 
2) If you're a Japan Rail Pass holder, booking a seat is free of charge: https://www.jrailpass.com/faq/seat-reservation  

3) If I were you, I would check it on Hyperdia. It's an online transportation planning tool that enables you to plan your trip from station to station: https://www.jrailpass.com/hyperdia    

4) My advice is: if you already have your itinerary mapped out, make seat reservations for your entire stay in Japan.
 
I hope all this information helps you.
