How to use The Seishun 18 Ticket from Tokyo to Nagoya

Traveling between Tokyo and Nagoya on a Seishun 18 ticket takes 6.5 hours. Since there are many trains, even beginners can easily get around.

If not used with careful consideration, it can often lead to unexpected mistakes and disappointing trips, so be sure to research the situation carefully before doing so.

The Seishun 18 Ticket also allows you to take a rapid train, so if you are traveling long distances, you should take advantage of rapid trains as much as possible.

Among the routes between Tokyo and Nagoya, there are many rapid trains between Tokyo and Atami, and between Toyohashi and Nagoya.

Tokyo to Atami

There are some rapid trains between Tokyo and Atami, but the main trains are local trains. In this section, both rapid and local trains run at the same speed.

Odawara to Atami

Odawara station

Odawara to Numazu

I stopped by Shizuoka Station for lunch.

There is no rapid train service between Atami and Toyohashi, and almost all trains are local trains that stop at each station.

However, depending on the time of day, a “home liner” may be available.

Toyohashi to Nagoya

The section between Toyohashi and Nagoya is a convenient section for rapid trains. Be sure to take a rapid train on this section.

Unlike in Tokyo, all trains named “rapid” pass through quite a few stations. There are three types of rapid trains: ordinary rapid, new rapid, and special rapid, but there are only minor differences in the stations they stop at.


In the Shizuoka area, you will inevitably have to ride long distances in long seats.

Almost all trains have toilets, so you don’t have to worry about that. In the Shizuoka area, there are some trains that do not have restrooms, but this is not a problem at all because the next train will be there in 20 to 30 minutes when you get off the train.
