Reserving Sunrise Express

I think I asked a similiar question before but a little confused regarding when in the month it is possible to reserve tickets for Sunrise Express train. I know there tickets open from 10.00 JST but not which day.

Someone said one month someone said 30 days.

Since the months längtar are different it is hard to know.

For instance, if I want to reserve August 15th, when should I or should I have reserved?


Hi there,

From the official JR website:

Reservations are possible from 10:00 (JST) on the morning of the day one month before your train is scheduled to depart.

Hi, Thank you for the reply.

Does it mean a month as in how many days? Sorry if it is a very simple question but it just confused me..
