Only the basic fare is covered with your Japan Rail Pass so if you use the GranClass car of the Tōhoku Shinkansen, Hokkaido Shinkansen, Jōetsu Shinkansen and Hokuriku Shinkansen, you must pay the limited express charge and the GranClass car surcharge.

It is not something that you can pre-book, so you must enquire directly at the JR ticket office (Midori no Madoguchi).
