I've posted before about an upcoming trip to Japan and have since booked everything (accommodation / bought a japan rail pass etc).
However I was just a bit concerned about travelling during Golden Week. We will be in Japan from April 25th - May 13th. Unfortunately this is the only time we could go and while we have time either side of the official golden week days, we will be doing some travel during this week.
As we come from the UK and wont be able to book trains until we arrive on the 25th April. My question is how busy will it be during this period (lots of websites seem to suggest it is either REALLY bad or not as bad as people say!) and if booking when we arrive will be ok.
Train journeys we will be making:
Sunday May 1st: Tokyo - Osaka
Tuesday May 3rd: Osaka-Kobe-Osaka (Day trip)
Wednesday 4th: Osaka - Mt Koya
Thursday 5th: Mt Koya - Kyoto
