JR Central announced “Family Cabins” (ファミリー車両) will be available in Nozomi trains again during coming summer holidays. Those are special cabins for families traveling with children under primary school age by Tokaido Shinkansen trains in such busiest periods. Families can be on board with crying and screaming little babies without hesitation. That may be a great option for family travelers.
