About Shinkansen ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto

Hi all,

I'm a tour guide in Nanjing, China. I have a friend who need me to help buy ticket from China via internet. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to buy from internet? Thanks in advance. Or if anyone there in Japan can help?

Pls forward me the contact. Thanks.

No.

yes, if you have a Japanese credit card and understands Japanese

For some routes (where you can buy the ticket from a different JR company) Japanese issued credit card may not be required.

There is absolutely no need to pre-book the Shinkansen ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto unless you're traveling in a peak season. Trains depart every 8-15 minutes.

When is your friend coming?
