I just got my pass for my last minute trip to Tokyo. Arriving NRT and headed strait to Kyoto as a base for 4 days.
Taking the Nex to Tokyo then switching.
I figured that a day or two in Kyoto then jump on the train first thing and got see another place or two.
First question is about luggage. My wife and I each have 1 26" suitcase. I have heard its can be tough to travel with on the train. What is your experience. So you know I did get the Green Car pass as I heard there tends to be more space.
We are hoping to catch a 430 nex to tokyo then a train a few minutes later to Kyoto. On the Return we may just head to Tokyo the day before our flight as its a 11 am flight and with the morning trains not starting till 5 we will be cutting things close.
Any feedback on the luggage and the early morning train or just take the train the night before would be greatly appreciated.
