What does the first class ticket entitle holder to?

What are the advantages compared to standard 7 day pass?

Is an upgrade possible and how do I do so if I decide to?

Hi there,

The main benefit of traveling Green Class (1st Class) on the Japan Railways is the extra comfort and quiet offered by green class. You have more space, reclining seats and a lot less people travel Green Class.

For Green Class see:

You have to purchase a Green Class JR Pass from the start, it is not possible to upgrade a normal JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
