Omiya to Ikebukuro on the JR Shonan-Shinjuku Line

I just had a question, I am planning on buying the green Japan Rail Pass and I see that there is a green car on the JR Shonan-Shinjuku line. I read elsewhere that it is green, but you cannot reserve a seat, can you confirm? If so, do you just get on and pick any seat (or stand if there is no room) and show your Japan Rail Pass when they check tickets?

BTW, I bought a pass last year through you guys and it went smoothly, so looking to buy again for my next trip to Japan!



  • Hi,

    Thank you for using our services again! We're sure you will have another great trip to Japan!

    You are correct in saying there are no reservations for this particular train. Instead Green Attendants will be on board in Green Cars, where they will check your pass.

    Kind regards,
