Changing resevations

I made a reservation in Tokyo for Odowara to Kyoto for tomorrow. I now need to change the resevations time. Does it matter, or can I just miss the reservation and take another train without a reservation? My JR pass is active


Hi there,

Just go to the ticket office and book a new ticket. If you still have your old ticket, give this back to the JR Staff so they can free up the seat for other passengers.

Hope this helps,
