How to make seat reservations

Shinkansen and most limited express and ordinary express trains have reserved Green car seats and both reserved and nonreserved ordinary car seats.

 

*There are no Green Cars on most HIKARI and KODAMA trains on the San'yo Shinkansen line (Shin-Osaka Hakata), or on TSUBAME trains on the Kyushu Shinkansen line (Shin-Yatsushiro Kagoshima- chūō )

A nonreserved seat can be used simply by showing your JAPAN RAIL PASS.

Seat reservations can be made without additional payment. To make a reservation, go to any Travel Service Center or a Reservation Office (Midori-no-madoguchi) at a JR station, or to the sales office of a JR-associated travel agency. There, show your PASS, and obtain your reserved-seat ticket before boarding.

 
Caution:

The sign for a Resevation Office(Midori-no madoguchi)

Please note that during crowded periods you cannot be guaranteed a seat on a specific train.
The periods when seat reservations are particularly difficult to secure are as follows:

December 29 to January 5
The New Year holiday period is the most popular travel time for Japanese people, for vacations and returns to hometown areas.

April 29 to May 5
Due to consecutive holidays in a comfortable travel season, there is large-scale travel throughout Japan for leisure and recreation.

August 13 to 15
Another time for traditional travel to home-town areas, called the Obon season.


Note: Do not use an automatic ticket-reading gate with a JAPAN RAIL PASS or a reserved-seat ticket. Please show the PASS at a manned ticket gate.
