How to ride Japan’s shinkansen (bullet train) following the new baggage rule

Fast, Convenient, Comfortable! Riding a bullet train (or ‘Shinkansen’ 新幹線 in Japanese) is probably one of the top must-do experiences for many travellers when visiting Japan. Japan’s shinkansen network has multiple lines with the Tokaido Shinkansen (Tokyo – Nagoya – Kyoto – Osaka) being the most popular.

Similar to airplanes, the shinkansen have seat and class categories: Ordinary and Green Car, with reserved or non-reserved seats.
Plus, a new rule was implemented in May 2020 that requires passengers to book in advance if they have any baggage between 160cm and 250cm that need to be brought onto the train. For those who have oversized baggage, be sure to keep this in mind before your ride!
