JR East will start to operate the newest and fastest express train “Hayabusa” on Tohoku Shinkansen on March 5, 2011. They released the timetable for Hayabusa. I will show you that.
But Japan Railway still did not announce that Japan Rail Pass can be used for Hayabusa or not. So please wait for that.
On Feb 1, 2011, I confirmed that Japan Rail Pass can be used for Hayabusa. But if you take Gran Class, you need to pay the extra. Please refer this post to see the details.

It’s in Japanese only. But it has tons of images and some English words. You may understand it.
