I hope you are doing well today. My family holiday of 8 days in Japan will take us from Narita (arrival airport) to Tokyo, Mt Fuji, Disneyland, Hiroshima, and back to Narita. I am considering the purchase of 7 Day Pass but would like to know the benefits of Green Pass purchase over Ordinary Pass.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Hi Patrik,

In general the benefits are:

  1. Quieter carriages
  2. bigger seats

Bear in mind that for your trip many of the trains you will use may not have Green cars available, so I recommend you use the standard class.

We have a good blog post on the differences here.

Hope this helps!
