  2. At the moment there is no reservation service for oversized luggage. There will be special luggage area on shinkansen trains with reservations starting from May 2020. You can find more information in this article: https://matcha-jp.com/en/7887?type=news We suggest using a luggage delivery service: http://www.global-yamato.com/en/hands-free-travel/ Your hotel or a tourist information counter can assist you with sending your luggage. From Kyoto to Tokyo luggage is usually delivered on the next day.
  3. Greetings, I need to travel from Kyoto to Tokyo by train but have several oversized luggage pieces with me. Luggage: 1 x Rimowe Trunk - 60 lbs - 80cm L x 37cm D x 41cm W 2 x Pelican Cases - approx 25 lbs each - 56cm L x 23cm D x 36 cm W 1 x Tenda Case - 60 lbs - 27cm L x 27cm D x 99 cm W We don't mind paying for them, but I cannot seem to find out that we can take them or that we can pay for them to accompany. We are travelling from Canada and the trip to Tokyo will be on October 30 at night. I would like to pre-book and pre-pay if possible. If it is not possible, what is another option? Thanks so much, Mandy Kane

  5. Many thx for your advice Japan Station Master.
  6. Nice to meet you It is a Myojo sightseeing bus that operates SKY BUS KYOTO. Thank you for introducing our SKY BUS as an article. This is a 4-hour bus tour of SKY BUS KYOTO introduced on the website, but the corresponding course is not currently operating. Many foreign customers visit the website of JAPAN STATION, but there are many inquiries about the 4-hour course. Please add a sentence such as "Currently this course is not in operation" or delete the article. Thank you.
  7. You can find the details about picking up tickets on this page: https://smart-ex.jp/en/entraining/ticket/place/
  8. Kanazawa Station is not very complex to navigate. 8 minutes is enough to transfer from Ltd. Exp. Thunderbird to Shinkansen if you don't make any stops along the way. Look for the "Transfer Gate" from between local lines and the shinkansen platforms. Please refer to this article for station layout and transfer details: https://www.kanazawastation.com/kanazawa-station-map-finding-your-way/ With a JR pass you can book seats any time after activating the pass. We recommend booking seats a few days in advance. This can be done at any JR ticket office in Japan.
  9. Ueno-Okachimachi Station on the Oedo Line is within walking distance from Keisei Ueno station, but it not a part of the same complex. It is about four city blocks away.
  10. Travel from Kyoto to Nozawa-Onsen Hi There, We will be travelling on Exp Thunderbird 1 from Kyoto to Kanazawa arriving on track 7 at 9.13am. Then we depart on track 14 for the Shinkansen Hakutaka 558 at 9.21am. This gives us exactly 8minutes to find track 14. Is this achievable and would anybody have an idea of which way to run lol. Also, with the JR Pass (purchased from overseas) are we booking the seats the day before? Thank you in advance. Annie
  11. Hello! This is great news. I am from the US, so does that mean that I do not need to be in Japan to reserve the seats? Can I also print the tickets after I make the reservations, and do I need to come to a ticket office in Japan to exchange whatever I print out as a reservation for actual tickets? Thank you so much!
  12. Hi.. Is there any direct access from Keisei- Ueno station to Oedo Line (Toei Line)? I have read the info that mentions direct access to Metro Subway Line (Ginza and Hibiya lines) only. But there is no info about access to Oedo Line. Thank you.
  13. You can take: JR KANSAI AIRPORT RAPID SERVICE for KYOBASHI from KIX to Hineno At Hineno transfer to LTD.

  14. Hi Japan Station Master I am still waiting for your reply as I need to firm up my logistics. If there is no direct train from KIX to Shirahama Beach, what options do I have? Do I take bus to Wakayama, then train to Tanabe and bus to Shirahama? Thank you.
  15. I am traveling to Tokyo with my elderly father and would like to limit how far he has to walk from the Narita Express platform at Shibuya to a taxi. Can you recommend the shortest distance? Thank you!

  19. The trains run all day on January 1st. The few days around the New Year are a busy travel season in Japan. The tickets go on sale one month in advance. You can make reservations at any JR ticket office in Japan. We recommend booking your tickets with reserved seats as early as possible after your arrival in Japan. If you are from: United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia or Thailand you can also use this app to make reservations online in advance: https://smart-ex.jp/en/
