  • This is your standard Shinkansen Ticket.

  • I added the Blue and Red line in to help me explain the ticket.

  • The Kanji to the left is for Sendai, and to the right it is for Hachinohe.

  • Make sure you know what the Kanji means beforehand so you don't go to the wrong destination.

  • At some train stations, they'll put English above the Kanji to help you out.

  • Above the blue line is the train number. In this case it's hayabusa 13.

  • In train station you'll see a sign with train numbers. Across from train number will be departure time.

  • Across from the departure time, in this case 11:54, will be the track number for the train.

  • They usually don't have multiple trains with the same number. If you see train 13 with a departure time

  • of 11:54 then this is your train. You can also check to make sure that it's a hayabusa to really make sure.

  • Just compare the hiragana on the ticket to the hiragana on the sign.

  • Above the red line, starting from the left, you have your car number, which in this case is number 4.

  • Moving to the right you have 7, which is the row number once you get inside the car.

  • And then finally you have \"D\" which is your seat letter in the car.

  • Once you find your track you locate the area for car number 4. After entering the train you locate

  • row 7 and then sit down in seat D.

  • Overall, it's pretty easy.

This is your standard Shinkansen Ticket.
