. I'm going to visit Japan this upcoming Golden Week and I will visit a friend there, she is Japanese. I plan to visit of course Tokyo, yokohama and area around Tokyo, but also Hirosaki which is my friend's hometown. Both of us are worried that trains will be crowded during Golden Week and that we should make train reservations as soon as possible. She explained me that the earliest reservations can be done one month before the trip and she can do it easily since she is Japanese and knows the language much better than me.
So my question is, if I buy Rail Pass can she reserve the seat for me from Japan so when I come to Japan I just apply my Rail Pass on that reservation?
If not, what are my chances of finding a seat for Hirosaki during Golden Week?
Thank you in advance for help
