Hi there,

I recommend reading this post on child JR Passes:

As a bit of general advise, children below the age of 6 can travel for free but are not entitled to a seat and you are expected to carry/take your child on your lap if trains are busy. Consider getting a child pass if you want to be secure of seating.

Hope this helps,
