JR or JR East pass for Tokyo Hakodate Green Car

It seems Green Car pass (7-day) is available from JR, but for JR East pass (6 travel days), Green Car reservation is separate and at additional fee. Which is better for Green Car travel in late June, and how far ahead should this be reserved to get 3 seats (2+1) together? Planned itinerary Tokyo-Hakodate-Sapporo, return by air. Thanks in advance

You get free reservations with a JR pass. You can make them at the same time you exchange the voucher for the actual pass in Japan. www.japanrailpass.net has the details.

Only the JR Green pass 7 day will work. But if all you are planning is what you have mentioned, then you are not saving anything with a pass. Buy regular tickets or do a few additional trips within the pass period.

Late June is not peak time, but sometimes seats sell out in Green car on that line, so best to get in advance.

Thanks for quick reply. Will opt for Green Pass for convenience and flexibility to add one or two side trips if time allows. Any advice on best same day out-and-back options from Hakodate and Sapporo in late June?
