questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

green pass

Green Pass

There are 6 of us going to Japan in early November. We are flying into Kansai Airport and will be in Japan for 10 days. We have decided that the Green Pass would be a better choice for us. I understand that reservations are needed with a green pass. Can the green pass be used on non green cars? Is there a fee for reservations?


Hello there,

Yes the Green Pass can only be used for normal seats, reservations are complimentary with the JR Pass. Both Green and Ordinary, so no extra fee is required.

Enjoy the ride!
