Shinkansen to Gala Yuzawa
Feb 2020
We did a day trip out to Gala Yuzawa on the Shinkansen so my 6 year old son could see snow for the first time. Using the Tokyo Wide pass it was quite reasonable value for money as there were no additional charges for the Shinkansen rides. The trains left on time and arrived on time - all good fun.

グリーン車最高 Must try GREEN-class-car
Aug 2019 • Solo
新潟と大宮、上野、東京間、あっという間。まさにあっという間。
以前知人が同じ日に東京まで戻る際、「指定席空いてなくて仕方ないからグリーン車にしたよ。」と言っていて、まだ切符を買っていなかったので合わせてグリーン車にしてみたら、千円くらいしか変わらないのに、俄然快適感UPだったので、それ以降(一人の時は)グリーン車愛用です。最後です。
The Japanese SIN-KAN-SEN is one of the most comfortable trains. If you use GREEN car, you can get an additional best comfortable there. The charge isn’t so expensive.

Going to Gala Yuzawa with Joetsu Shinkansen
Jan 2019 • Family
The shinkansen train is good for going to Gala Yuzawa ski resort. But you have to concern about the time schedule, not to waste your time for waiting in Tokyo station.
If you go to gala-yuzawa, don't worry about reserved seat, just ride unreserved ones.
Since it depart from Tokyo station, it is not hard to find empty seat in unreserved cars.

I was missed an hour just because making seat reservation, and it was wasting time to wait the schedule for the train with reserved seat. I didn't know if there are 4 unreserved cars, and enough to get you all onboard, since Tokyo station is the first station.
Better not to depart from Ueno (second departing station, if you don't have reserved seat). I went there at January 1, peak season, and making reservation just made my family split into 4 different seats, 2 different cars.

Tokio-Niigata
Feb 2016 • Solo
Travelled from Tokyo to Niigata with Joetsu Shinkansen train. The train was perfectly tidy, as is norm after enormously dedicated and professional TESSEI-staff*.

Having paid little surcharge for "Green Car" upgrade, I had reclining seat with plenty of space and a footrest. Level of comfort was unbelieveable after having spent long hours in cramped economy seat in airplane. Almost unexistent noise and vibrations made it easy to sleep most of the trip.

*If visiting Japan 1st time, pay some attention for personnel cleaning and preparig bullet trains at end stations, wait for traditional bowings before entering the train.
