About the Rail Pass
Plan on travelling from Tokyo to Kanazawa on the new Hokuriku Shinkansen. We will have a JR national Pass for Green Car is it possible to upgrade to GranClass tickets and if so what is involved.
Thank you for writing us.
Unfortunately, a JR Pass of any kind will not make you eligible for GranClass ticket discounts.
Can you advise the cost of a GranClass ticket on the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kanazawa (for travel in April). And how do I purchase these tickets? Thank you.
For GranClass tickets, you'll need to go to a JR Ticket office in Japan.
Are you able to give an approximate cost to upgrade from a Green JR 7day pass seat to a Gran Class seat on the new shinkansen from Tokyo to Kanazawa in April?
