About the Rail Pass
Hi. I plan to buy JR pass 7 day but wondering if the pass is cover Chuo limited express (Super Azusa) departs from Shinjuku Station and travels directly to Hakuba station. Kindly advise.
All the trains that are exceptions and can't be used with the Pass are clearly listed on the official info page:
Thank for your reply. In fact, I'm planning to visit Hakuba, Takayama, shiragawago, Kyoto and Osaka within 9 days. Appreciate if you could advise on the suitable pass.
You don't give your full itinerary, so it's hard to be concise. Are you returning to Tokyo? If so, and you can return within 7 days, a 7 day pass would pay off. Otherwise, a 14 day pass would not without expanding your itinerary a lot.
Be aware also that going from Hakuba to Takayama is going to be very tedious - with the best connection, taking over 4½ hours and many transfers.
You can see regular fares, routes and schedules on Hyperdia.

Does it matter if the last name stands first on the JRP and then the first name?
