The Holiday Rapid View Yamanashi (ホリデー快速ビューやまなし) is a Holiday Rapid service train operated by East Japan Railway Company from Shinjuku to Kobuchizawa on the Chūō Main Line.

Service pattern[edit]

  • 1 round trip is operated every weekend from March to November.[1]
  • Services are not operated from December to February, to prevent train failures due to the winter season, as the rolling stock, the 215 series, is not designed to withstand low temperatures and snow.

Stations served[edit]


There are 3 types of seating for this train, namely Non-reserved seating (自由席), Reserved seating (指定席) and Green Seating (グリーン席), which require different tickets.[1]

For non-reserved seating, only a Basic Fare Ticket (乗車券) is required. This is different from non-reserved seating on Limited Expresses, as this train is only a Rapid service, which makes the purchase of a Non-reserved Limited Express Ticket (自由席特急券) unnecessary.

For reserved seating, a Seat Reservation Ticket (座席指定券) costing 520 yen is required, along with the Basic Fare Ticket.

For Green seating, a Green Car Ticket (グリーン券) is required, with pricing depending on distance, along with the Basic Fare Ticket.
