When using the JRP do you need to book a seat before riding a train? Or do you just show up and jump on the train? Can someone please help?

Also does the JRP cover a trip to Hiroshima from Tokyo?

Hi there,

You can either just hop on the train and take a non-reserved seat or go to a ticket windows and reserve a seat in advance.

To read more about making seat reservation in advance, please see:

The route Tokyo - Hiroshima is completely covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
