Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are the advantages of the Green Pass?

The Green Pass provides its holder access to the 1st class Green Cars, on all Shinkansens and certain fast lines. More and more travelers are opting for this kind of pass because of all the advantages and comfort it offers.

The Green Pass is the perfect solution to be sure always to have a seat available when traveling during the high season of May, August, and September. The Green Cars are more spacious and less busy.

There are also private Green compartments on certain Limited Express trains such as the Super-View Odoriko, as well as smoking areas.

You will be able to enjoy the view from a large reclinable seat, with a nifty footrest, integrated radio set, travel magazine, and space for your luggage.

How do I find the Green Cars?

Depending on the train, there are between 1 and 3 Green Cars. They are easily identifiable thanks to the green clover on the side of the carriage. Usually, the Green Cars are located at the front of the trains. The location of the Green Cars is usually indicated on the platform floor.
