Is food or Bento Boxes sold in all carriages on the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto?. I have a feeling it is only sold in the Expensive Green carriages?. Or would you suggest i purchase some snack food at the Narita Airport for my Shinkansen journey. Thank you.

Hi there,

Bento boxes and other snacks/drinks are sold in every train compartment. A trolley will come by from time to time which you can buy from. I would however recommend buying your Eki Bento at a train station as there as more choice and sometimes they are fresh made while you wait.

Hope this helps,
