after using the 2 week jrpass, we still have 2 days without pass n will do some travel with the train too. in Hyperdia.com, the price show fare price and seat price. can we just buy the fare price without the seat price?


  • Hi Purpleowl,

    No, unfortunately the seat price must always be paid. At the top of the route information on Hyperdia you'll see it says "Total:¥(price)", this is the price you will have to pay (fare + seat fee). The seat fee amount changes depending on whether you purchase a green seat ticket, reserved seat ticket, or unreserved seat ticket, which is why it's shown separately, but the amount must always be paid. The unreserved seat fee is always the cheapest option!

    Hope this makes things more clear.
