Train reservation from Tokyo to Toyama

Hi everyone,

I would like to travel from Tokyo to Toyama via the Horkuriku Shinkansen. I bought the Horkuriku Arch Pass and understand that Horkuriku Shinkansen need to reserve seats. However when I tried to reserve seat there is no Toyama destination from Tokyo. Can somebody advice how to reserve seats from Tokyo to Toyama? and how many days in advance should I reserve the seats. Thank you


Hi there,

Once you have your pass, you can just go any JR ticket window. Tell the staff where you wish to travel. They will then find the best route for you and reserve the tickets.

Hope this helps,
