Availability if the bullet train tic during peak season

Hi there, i will be travelling to japan this 3/29/2015, and will be going to kyoto from Hakone on 4/2/2015. Is there any possibility that the bullet train tic will be sold out? Thanks


Hello there,

In a practical sense no. Bullet trains rarely sell out and even then you can queue up for a non-reserved seat. This period is maybe a bit more busy because of potential Sakura viewers but I don't see any problems getting tickets.

You can always reserve them the moment that you land in Japan, just in case you wish to make sure.

Hope this helps,
