If you miss the train, you will not be able to use your tickets for the same type of train at a later time and date.You might be able to exchange them for an earlier train depending on the availability of reserved seats on the train. During peak travel seasons in Japan, reserved seats are sold out very quickly and travellers including the locals themselves have to book Green Car seats to secure a train ride in the fastest train.
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 reserved seat, a super (limited) express reserved seat ticket is required. When you will use a non-reserved seat, a super (limited) express non-reserved 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 reserved 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 reserved seat ticket (GranClass) are required in addition to a basic fare ticket.
Adults and children are classified as follows -
Adult - 12 or older
Child - 6 through 11
