Hi, I will fly to Fukuoka on 18 Nov (Sat), with husband and a 3-year old kid.
I would like to buy green car reserved 7-day JR pass for 2 adults and 1 child (want to let my boy occupy a seat) and will use the pass from 20 to 26 Nov.
*Would you please comment on my plan, whether it is possible / good plan:
*Question: is it too late to reserve seat on 18 Nov? (just two days before) can I reserve Yufuin no mori earlier, before I arrive Japan, but I will use JR pass? As people suggest to reserve the tickets of Yufuin no mori ASAP as it is always full.
*How to reserve the booth seats with a table, for Yufuin no mori? as the train takes 2 hours to arrive.
*does all green cars in Japan have booth seats? including Shinkansen?
18 Nov (sat) arrive hakata JR station to get JR pass, then reserve seat (for Yufuin no mori (20 and 21 Nov), shinkansen hikari/sakura (23 Nov))
20 Nov (Mon) morning, from Hakata to Yufuin, by Yufuin no mori
21 Nov (tue) night, from Yufuin to Hakata, by Yufuin no mori
23 Nov (THur, public holiday), shinkansen Hikari/Sakura to Tokyo (5.5 hr)
23-26 tokyo, will go Odaiba, Disney sea, etc
27 Nov (Mon), buy NEX express to Narita airport (pay single trip tickets for 2 adults 1 kid), fly to home country in the afternoon.
thanks a lot for your comment/ advice !
