Seat reservations during Golden Week in 2017


My husband and I will arrive in Tokyo on 30 April 2017 and plan to ride a train from Tokyo to Osaka on 5 May 2017. We will use JR green passes. Will we have trouble getting seat reservations on the train?

Thank you.


Hi there,

I don't think that you will have any problems getting seat reservations. To be sure, do so a couple of days in advance and you can even pick the seat where you want to sit.

Hope this helps,
