Hey, I am going to Japan this summer for 3 weeks and will have the 21 day JR rail pass. Because of this, I cannot reserve shinkansen seats until I arrive in Japan. Will I have to reserve them right when I get there, or is there usually open seats on shinkansen? How do you go about getting open seats on the spot? (I will be travelling From Tokyo, down through Osaka, making stops at fuji, nara, etc.) I really don't know much about shinkansen travel. So anything you know about reservations, seating, and stops will probably help.
