Think your CO worry too much... Dec 9 is a normal weekday. Not many ppl taking Shinkansen.

You cannot book online if you are using JR pass. There are enough seats, so no need to worry too much. Once you have your JR pass, start to book your tickets, then won't have any issues.

Pls see below video for details



If you need additional details, pls feel free to ask here or pm me. Or ask your CO contact me, i give him a briefing on travelling in Japan... =)
Actually now u can.

Online booking only for select JR east train service

https://www.jreast.co.jp/e/ticket/reservation.html

Can only book one month before.

Catch is if you fail to collect your tickets on the day before, you must pay the full reservation fee (510 yen)

Just need to change Jr pass and collect it at a midorinomadoguchi
