Hi there,

Unfortunately you cannot make reservations until you have activated the pass in Japan - however, you are not travelling in a particularly tourist-heavy season, so I don't think you'll struggle to make reservation. You can make all of your reservations in one go once having activated the JR Pass.

Hope this helps!
