Reservations

Do I have to wait until I exchange my voucher for my pass in Japan before I reserve seats on the shinkansen?

Thanks

Hi there!

Basically yes, you are able to start making reservations the moment that you are in Japan and have exchanged your JR Pass.

Thanks for your reply.

Will I be able to make this reservation at the Exchange Office in Narita?

Also, can I purchase a separate ticket at the same time for my daughter who lives in Japan?

Yes you can make the reservations right away at Narita Airport and also purchase tickets for traveling company as well. I've done so multiple times when traveling with Japanese friends (who can't use the JRPass).
