JR West rail pass changes and new Nozomi pass

Jump to last reply

JR west has three new passes, changes to two others, and two are being discontinued.

The new passes look like a great deal. They cover Nozomi and Mizuho trains on the Sanyo shinkansen.

Also a new pass that includes Nozomi shinkansen on Tokaido and Sanyo shinkansen

Read the assessment at the bottom. It is more expensive than a 7-day pass, but for some itineraries I think it would be worth it because it includes the more frequent Nozomi trains. And you can avoid having to change trains at some point between the Tokaido and Sanyo lines. For example, one train for Hiroshima to Tokyo in 4 hours vs at least one change as required by a JR Pass and almost 5 hours of travel.
