Tokyo - Kyoto on Japan Rail

Jump to last reply

We plan to visit Japan in November and will travel from Tokyo to Kyoto by rail, but intend to stop by Odawara to visit Hakone for a day. The Japan-Guide web site says that if the travel is greater than 100Km, you have two days to complete the journey and stopping over is possible. Has anyone done this before and how does it work? Do you lose your reserved seat on the continuation part of the journey?
I also get the impression that if you pre-purcahse a non-reserved ticket for a certain day you can take any train during the day that goes that way? Does the non-reserved cars ever get full? I heard ordinary Japanese seldom reserve their seats.
Your help is much appreciated.
