Riding Nozomi and Mizuho Shinkansen bullet trains:

However, JR Pass holders can ride the Shinkansen Hikari bullet train instead. It reaches the same speed as Nozomi and Mizuho trains - 300 km/h (190 mph). The only difference is that the Hikari Shinkansen train makes more stops before reaching its final destination.
