We supposed that the number of trains is increased on the day of much demand which is estimated by JR companies. Tokado, Sanyo and Kyushu Shinkansen’s most frequently serviced days during Golden Week holidays (April 27, 2018 – May 6) are May 3 for outbound trains and May 6 for inbound ones. Therefore the peak of crowding should be on these days.

The reservation tickets are available a month prior to the travel date. For example, the reservation ticket for May 3 will be available from April 3. If you are planning to travel in this crowding period, you should get ticket as soon as you can.

We will report the estimation of peak days during Golden Week holidays in the early April. Don’t miss it!
