Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen ‘Nozomi’ to Operate All Reserved Seating During Golden Week April 26 to May 6

Tokaido Shinkansen N700A

JR Central and JR West have announced that during the Golden Week period from April 26th to May 6th, the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen ‘Nozomi’ services will suspend non-reserved seating and operate as all-reserved seating trains.

While passengers holding non-reserved seating tickets will still be able to stand in the ordinary car decks, they will not be allowed to sit even if there are vacant seats. Other services such as ‘Hikari’ and ‘Kodama’ will maintain non-reserved seating as usual.

This measure was also implemented during the New Year’s holiday period, resulting in an approximate 30% increase in ordinary car reserved seats, contributing to the alleviation of congestion on the platforms.

Moreover, reservations for designated seats on the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen can be made online up to one year before the ride.
