What are the differences between Ordinary and Green pass?

Ordinary Pass:  Travel in Ordinary Car (Standard Class)

The Ordinary Car is the equivalent of Standard Class in the UK. However, the Ordinary Class on the Shinkansen (the bullet train) offers much more personal space than average trains in the UK.  

Advanced seat reservation is possible only after you have arrived in Japan and exchanged your voucher for your JR Pass.

 



Green Pass: Travel in Green Car ( First Class)

The Green Car is the equivalent of First Class, which can be found on all Shinkansens and certain express trains.

Advanced seat reservation is possible only after you have arrived in Japan and exchanged your voucher for your JR Pass. The Green JR Pass offers more space, comfort and is generally less crowded.  We advise you to buy Green Pass for those who travel during peak seasons (April, May, August, September and around New Years) when Ordinary Cars can become fully booked very quickly.
