    We travelled from Yokohama to Kyoto on the Shinkansen in April 2024. We were fortunate that we had someone in Japan book our ticket ahead of time. They reserved the “utiliity” room for us and it was amazing. In my opinion is was worth the money and part of the experience in Japan to take the Shinkansen. Below is a photo of the “utility” room. If you can transfer to a regular seat there is also a location to put your wheelchair. There was no extra charge for the utility room.
