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 summer holidays (August 9 – 18, 2019) are August 9 for outbound trains and August 17 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 August 9 will be available from July 9. If you are planning to travel in this crowding period, you should get tickets as soon as you can.
