About the Rail Pass
Would the JR pass allow me to take Shinkansen all the way from Tokyo to Kagoshima?
Also, From Tokyo to My. Fuji?
Yes to Kagoshima.
There is no bullet train to Fuji. At best you can go to Odawara, and then take a bus or train to your final destination.
You can see schedules, routes, etc on
Thank you Tenjin. I was a little confused about the pass getting me down to Kagoshima. It looks like I can take bullet there but only certain trains. If anyone knows if that is correct please let me know.
You cannot take the Nozomi or Mizuho bullet trains, but others are fine.
I suggest you avoid the Kodama trains though, which stop at every single bullet train station. Hikari or Sakura trains are good.
Honestly though, if I were you, I'd consider flying. With the best connection, taking the train would take just over 7 hours.
You could fly for dirt cheap in about 2 hours with something like ANA's Experience Japan Fare.
