Yea which was why I mentioned, JR east service.

Tokaido shinkansen is by JR chuo/central I think.

And yes you still can make shinkansen reservation although I agree its not necessary.

Eki-net (えきねっと)

I have received a comment from one of my readers, Tak. He told me we can use this Japanese online reservation system even for Japan Rail Pass users. This online reservation is in Japanese. So unfortunately anyone cannot use. However some of my readers asked me that we can use a friend in Japan to make a reservation for Japan Rail Pass user in outside of Japan. Yes. You can do it now.

This reservation system cover all over Japan. So for example, you can book for Shinkansen between Tokyo and Shin Osaka. We cannot do this in JR East Shinkansen Reservation. But this online reservation is not perfect. I tried to book for several overnight trains, like Sunrise Seto, Hokutosei and Twilight Express. I could get some of overnight trains. I found Akebono and Hokutosei. But this site showed only Type-B berth. It did not show me any compartment. I have received so many questions about Nobi Nobi seat of Sunrise Seto/Izumo and Carpet car of Hamanasu. But I could not make it for these trains.
So even if you have a friend in Japan or speak Japanese, you still cannot make a reservation for most of overnight trains.

Hi dimitri_can,

Can you teach me how to say "Is there beef?" and "I do not take beef" and also the Japanese character for BEEF.

As i do not take beef, i would like to try to avoid ordering food with beef in it.

Thank you!!

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... =)
Hi dimitri_can

I need to take Tokaido Shinkansen on Sunday, 22 Nov. I understand it is Japan long weekend. Do you think i might have a problem getting 3 seats ...

Hi Bros,

Thanks, getting a bit confused. I am planning to get a 7 Days JR pass. So this Tokyo to Shin Osaka Shinkasen can use this JR pass right?
