When you have a JRPass do you have to pay for a reserved seat on the Shinkansen Hikari?

Hi there,

No - you do not have to pay for any seat reservations with the JR Pass. Seat reservations are free on all valid Bullet trains, express trains and local trains for Japan Rail Pass holders.

Hope this helps!
