Public Holidays

I was wondering if trains run on Public Holidays?


Hi there,

Yes, trains run on Japanese Public Holidays. You can find a full list of public holidays in Japan here. Please note that schedules may be different on public holidays so I recommend that you confirm your plans with the hyperdia timetable if you think you'll be travelling around these dates.

Hope this helps!
