There is no Shinkansen at Shibuya station. Take it from Nagano to Tokyo Station, then transfer to Yamanote line.

At this time of year the Unreserved seats are quite full (of skiers and boarders from Kanazawa Myoko and Nozawa (Iiyama) . So you would be better to book a reserved seat (more expensive - but you wont be standing up)

Take the Hokuriku Shinkansen from Tokyo Station. Visit the JR station office at the station for tour ticket if you haven’t purchased it prior o/seas. We didn’t book reserved seating and the unreserved carriages had adequate seating. Bring your own food though as there isn’t a lot in the food trolley cart.
