NOZOMI TOKAIDO SHINKKANSEN

Hi ...

We are travelling by Nozomi Tokaido Shinkkansen from Nagoya to Kyoto then to Osama then back to Nagoya for 6days travelling from 18 Nov to 24Nov.

As we are of 11 pax will I have any problems in purchasing ticket? Do I need to reserve?

Hi Valeries,

Generally not, though you may want to purchase tickets 1-2 days in advance to secure seating together. You can do so at any JR sation.

Do note that the Nozomi is not included in a JR Pass but you can use the Hikari/Sakura Shinkansen instead.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

I have some problems understanding the ticket price.
There is a Base fare plus some other charges even thou my dates are not during peak hours?

And do the shinkansen have luggage space?

Thanks!

Hi again!

Shinkansen have limited luggage space. Generally there is place for 4 suitcases at the end of each train car.

As for ticket prices, you have to pay the Seat free and Fare, both add up to the total price of the ticket.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
