    The ticket shops scattered around that sell discount movie tickets, etc. also see Shinkansen tickets. Don't know if you can get every destination or just the main ones (like Kyoto, Osaka, etc.).

    Generally, the discount tickets can't be used at peak times like Golden Week or New Year.

      I have a favorite shop in Okachimachi (same chain in Ikebukuro, near Sunshine City) - usually has Shinkansen tickets for every destination up to Osaka. They usually have a board with a list of all available destinations and the current price.

      Anyway, there a lot of these shops around and it's best to find a place where there is more than one shop. If there's more than one shop close together, means they'll be competing with each other in prices.
