How far in advance is it necessary to purchase? We are traveling in July from Tokyo to Kyoto and then back to Tokyo stopping at Fuji. 5 people. Do seats sell out? Thanks

Hi there,

Do you mean train tickets or the JR Pass?

Hi again!

The JR Pass has to be activated within 90 days after purchase. So hold off a little longer if you plan to travel in July.

Trains are rarely fully booked and you will be sure of seating if reserve tickets 1 day (or even less) in advance.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
