Why are some shinkansen tickets issued as 2 pieces?
If you receive 2 tickets for one direction, one acts as a basic fare ticket and the other a super (limited) express train ticket.
If you receive 1 ticket for one direction, it means that the basic fare ticket and the super (limited) express train ticket were issued as 1 ticket.
A basic fare ticket is necessary for all train travel.
For traveling on a Shinkansen (bullet train), you need to purchase a super (limited) express train ticket in addition to a basic fare ticket. (When you will use a designated seat, a super (limited) express designated seat ticket is required. When you will use a non-designated seat, a super (limited) express non-designated seat ticket is required.)
To travel in a Green Car (first class) of a Shinkansen, you will need a super (limited) express ticket and a Green Car designated seat ticket in addition to a basic fare ticket.
To travel in GranClass of a Shinkansen, a super (limited) express ticket and a Green Car designated seat ticket (GranClass) are required in addition to a basic fare ticket.
Adults and children are classified as follows -

Child - 6 through 11
