green pass or ordinary?

Green Pass or Ordinary?

Hello,
I hope you are doing well today. My family holiday of 8 days in Japan will take us from Narita (arrival airport) to Tokyo, Mt Fuji, Disneyland, Hiroshima, and back to Narita. I am considering the purchase of 7 Day Pass but would like to know the benefits of Green Pass purchase over Ordinary Pass.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!
Patrick

Hi Patrik,

In general the benefits are:

  1. Quieter carriages
  2. bigger seats

Bear in mind that for your trip many of the trains you will use may not have Green cars available, so I recommend you use the standard class.

We have a good blog post on the differences here.

Hope this helps!
