Nagano to Tokyo on New Year's Eve with Nagano-Niigata pass

Hello all,

Me and my wife will be arriving in Tokyo on 23rd of December, going with Shinkansen from Tokyo to Nagano on the 26th and from Nagano back to Tokyo on 31st.

My question is, can we reserve seats with the 5-day Flex Nagano-Niigata pass once we arrive to Narita? Or should we avoid the 31st of December and change it to a day earlier?

Thanks in advance to all who respond, it is very much appreicated.



Hi Toni,

You can reserve your seats once you are in Japan and have exchanged the JR Pass. You could thus do this right away at Narita Airport. I would also recommend this, as the 31st is one of the most busy travel days in Japan.

Hope this helps,
