Sunrise Izumo Seat Reservation

over 3 years ago

Based on ROUTE 1 in the following scenario, does the "reserved seat" (costing 1240yen) correspond to an actual seat one can sit in or is this the "nobinobi" I keep reading about? Also, is this reserved seat covered by the JRPass?

It so happens to be the last train out of Matsue in the direction of the Sanyo line and I'd like the extra half hour it may give me in relation to the last Yakumo.

Thank you!

Hi there,

The reserved seat is indeed the NobiNobi seat and is completely free with the JR Pass.

Guess I answered your question in one sentence but it's as simple as that :)

Hope this helps!
