KIHA-283 series is used for both Super Ozora. KIHA-261 series is used for Super Tokachi. Both fleets equip nice features and good seats.
KIHA-283 series Green seat is one of the best in all JR trains. It has a powered seat and 2+1 seat configuration. It has a power outlet. Ordinary class is 2+2 seat configuration and the leg space is 960mm. It is not a bad choice.
KIHA-261 series Green seat is same seat configuration 2+1 and interior as 283 series. But it has a leather seat. The seat does not have strong leather smell. But if you do not like a leather seat, It is not recommended. Ordinary seat is almost same as 283 series.
