As many customers begin their Shinkansen journey from Tokyo station, we have recently added a new option of receiving tickets at Tokyo Central Post Office, which is located right in front of Tokyo station (open 24hrs 365days).
This option will make it easier for those who do not stay at a hotel in Tokyo or those who make a ticket order at the last minute, to pick up their tickets safely, conveniently and atemporally.
