Default Japan Rail Pass Question Normal Vs 1st Class

for people who have used once or more the JR Pass for the Bullet Train what's it like in both class's.

What do I get with normal class ( what perks I get ) vs 1st class ( more or better perks )


Normal cost like $350 and 1st Class cost like $485 I want to know if it's worth paying over $100 for first class or not and just stick with normal class

It's not worth going "Green Car". The only useful difference is a bit more personal space, and depending on the train, carpet.

Plus, with the regular pass, you may not get a seat so you may have to stand at times.

I suppose that's a consideration depending on when and where you're going. I don't think I've ever had to stand on the shinkansen, only on regular express (which was a long enough trip to be comparable, but perfectly fine in any case).
So if it's likely to be very busy and you're feeble, or if you are particularly old/vain/silly, then and only then, should you consider spending the extra money.
