I will be travelling to Japan (april 22 till may 8) with my family. Since there will be 8 of us, including 2 children, I wan't to be careful and choose best itinerary possible, not to end up in crowded areas during Golden Week. The biggest concern is our trip from Kyoto to Tokyo (it can't be avoided) on Saturday, april 27th, right when the Golden Week begins. Could you please advise me, is it possible that we won't get seats or will have difficulties? We will make a reservation as soon as we land on april 22nd. I read that this year will set a record because of prolonged holidays and the holiday bookings will be triple.
Thank you in advance!
