Does the Japan Rail Pass let me use the famous bullet trains (shinkansen)?

The Japan Rail Pass allows you to ride on all Bullet Trains EXCEPT Nozomi and Mizuho on the Tokaido, Sanyo and Kyushu Shinkansen.  You will find Bullet Trains on longer distance lines. For smaller networks in more remote or less populated places you’ll find smaller trains being used.  Don’t worry, they’re all comfortable, reliable and fast.
