Thank you Daniel for your swift response.
Very helpful!

Is it common to make reservations of train/ seat in advance or is the common just to show up and board the train you have planned to go by?

Thanks

I usually just hop on the train when I want to or make reservations 20min before departure.

In the weekend/holidays it is better to reserve tickets 1-2 days in advance.

Enjoy Japan!
