Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass), Best way to travel Japan by train With the JR Pass, you have access to the nationwide Japan Rail network. This way, your travel costs will be far more economical than buying individual tickets. 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.
