My wife and I will be travelling to Japan in July 2019. We have used standard JR Pass and Suica on previous visits. This time we're considering Green Class but I need to understand the full benefits. I know Express and Shinkansen have Green Class.
Our itinerary includes:
Narita Express to Tokyo
Tokyo to Nagoya (day trip Shinkansen)
Tokyo to Hakodate (Shinkansen)
Hakodate to Sapporo
Sapporo to Tokyo Shinjuku (local/Shinkansen)
Tokyo to Osaka (day trip Shinkansen)
Question 1: Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto to Sapporo return. Is this an Express train? Does it have Green Class?
Question 2: What JR Green Class local/Express trains are available in/around Sapporo, Tokyo and Osaka?
Question 3: Does the Shinkansen to Nagoya/Hakodate/Osaka include drinks/snacks?
