What is the difference between the Odakyu Limited Express Romancecar and the Express Train?

On the Limited Express Romancecar, all seats are reserved, and it takes about 75 minutes to travel between Shinjuku and Hakone-Yumoto. In addition to a regular passenger ticket, a limited express ticket is required to board. On other trains, including Rapid Expresses and Expresses, there is standing space with few seats. While seating is not guaranteed, only a regular ticket is required to board. The ride between Shinjuku and Hakone-Yumoto takes about two hours.
