I have some questions on the price of train tickets found in hyperdia, please help me out. An example pluck from hyperdia site - Kyoto to Tokyo using Shinkansen Hikari (fare: 7980yen + reserved seat 5240yen). Is that the total price I have to pay at the manned station or there is an additional fee for reservation?
If I choose an unreserved seat (fare: 7980yen + 4730yen), does that mean there wouldn’t be assigned seating to me and I have to find a empty seat when I board the train?
From hyperdia website, the schedule and price only show till September, will there be a difference during November period?
