Using the Sunrise Izumo w/ JR Pass

over 4 years ago
1 response


I will be arriving in Japan on May 17. I have purchased a 21-day JR Pass, and would like to take the Sunrise Izumo on May 31.

I read that I have to make a reservation for the Sunrise Izumo.

My question is once I activate my JR Pass on May 17, can I also reserve a seat for the Sunrise Izumo? Is that enough time, or will it be sold out?

Thank you!

Hi there,

This is quite a nice time window and I think that you'll be able to get seats in time if you activate the JR Pass around the 17th and serve seats at the same time.

Hope this helps,
