credit card and when to buy

Hi again.

I want to know if I can pay the shinkansen train with credit card at the station

I am going to Kawaguchiko and after to Kioto.

I don't know exactly at what time I want to take the shinkansen train to Kioto. ¿Can I just get to the station and buy a ticket for the next train that is going from Tokio to Kioto?


Hi there,

1.) Yes, Major Credit-cards are accepted.

2.) You can find route details using, or you could just go to the station and get on the train :)
