High season

If we travel around Christmas New Years but not arriving in Japan until Dec 23, how can we make reservations for busy times like Dec 28 and Jan 1 or Jan 2?
If we can't get reservations, can we get a seat if we get in line early enough? How early is needed? (traveling Tokyo, Kyoto, Kagoshima, Osaka)


  • Hi Rubee,

    You can make your reservation of seat only in Japan.
    Please go to Japan Railway's ticket office when you arrive in Japan. You can do reservation in advance.
    Normaly you can take your seats no problem.

    If you have any question don't hesitate to share us!

    Thank you very much,

    Best regards
