Seat Reservation

Hi,

I am planning to take Yufuin no mori from Hakata to Yufuin/ Beppu but understand that seating is by reservation only. Can JR pass holder make reservation in this case? If yes, how do we make the reservation?

Thank you.

Best Regards
Tricia

Hi Tricia,

Yes you can make a reservation for this with the JR-Pass!
Simply go to any JR-Ticket office, show your JR-Pass, tell the staff where you would like to go and the time.
The staff will than make the reservation and print the tickets.

Now you are good to go!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel-san!

However I will reach Fukuoka on 28 Mar (late night) and I am planning to go Yufuin on 30 Mar. I am worried the seats will be fully reserved by the time I reach. In your opinion, will I still be able to secure a seat in this case?

Hi Tricia,

That does complicate things, March this 30th is a national holiday and weekend so it may be booked by then, still there are a couple of trains a day so you may be able to obtain a seat.

Will you be traveling alone?

Best Wishes,
Daniel

Thank you.
