Very quiet, so you could have relaxing time.

We will introduce two tips.

-Reserve Mt.Fuji side seat 
To go to Kyoto, Mt.Fuji is right side and to Tokyo, it’s left side.
Please reserve E seat.
If you are two people, please book D & E.
If you are four, please book D & E in each row.

-Watch your watch!
Bullet train is so quiet that you will become sleepy, but don’t fall asleep!
If so, please set alarm.
You will find Mt.Fuji after 40 minutes from Tokyo station.
