JR West Hikari Railstar Service

JR West Hikari Railstar Service
JR West Hikari Railstar trains do not have green cars.  But, the reserved coaches are quite comfortable a step up from other JR Shinkansen coach seating.  Additionally, non-reserved coach seating on Railstar trains is old and cramped so be sure to always get a reserved seat when using the Railstar.
