This was taken in Kyoto Station 2013 Sep, a Shinkansen N700 series to Nagoya.
This is a “Kodama” type shinkansen, which means the train will stop every stop during the journey. There is a type called “Hikari” which will stop at some stops and “Nozomi” which stops only the big station. With the JR pass, the tourists can only travel through “Kodama” and “Hikari”, but not with “Nozomi”.
I had traveled once with the “Nozomi” in the evening from Toyko to Osaka, it did cost around 14,000 yen (with HKD : Yen, 6.5 :100), nearly HKD 1,500.
