Shinkansen (Bullet Train) Kyoto-Tokyo---Step by step process

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are experienced travelers, but we’re experiencing a bit of anxiety towards our upcoming first-time-ever visit to Japan.

One detail in particular concerns us---we must independently get the Shinkansen train from Kyoto to Toyko on one specific day. It would be SO helpful if somewhat can detail step-by-step the process---

Buying the ticket. Where? When? Does it limit to one particular departure time? A reserved seat?
Finding the platform.
Finding the car/seat if the seat is reserved.
We have standard small roller suitcases (on an airplane, they would go in overhead bin). Is there room at the seat for them?
Thanks for helping us visualize the process!!
