Japan Golden Week last few days.
Luckily I was warned by HIS Japanese staff when I bought JRP.
All that route on last Sunday afternoon onwards were full.
Otherwise I will be sitting next to the Shinkansen toilet for 4.5 hours.

Wow, must be some special occasion. JR Hokkaido has been reporting / forecasting some dismal load numbers (like around the region of 30% only) ...

The new bus limousine expressway bus stop at Shinjuku, does it stop at the flyover itself? Next to the ticket counter for JR rail pass or Tokyo pass?

Anyone watch concert in Japan before? Going to watch a live at Shinjuku RENY. Any advice?
I have done one at Yokohama arena

note the details on your ticket or e-ticket. Go earlier if you want to buy concert goods, it is also a good idea to go a bit earlier to queue for entry. Some venues charge an extra venue entry fee, Tokyo Zepp for example will charge entry which includes a drink.

possible, but it will be much faster and cheaper to go by domestic flight. train will be good if there are places u are visiting along the way

Thanks for all forum members on clarifications on the reserved seat. I am not buying JR pass coz only use it for one day to alpine route. I will get the ticket at Narita airport and also the Y9000 tateyama kurobe option ticket. Website says can buy at airport JR office.

From hyperdia search , I plan to dep from Oshiage station taking the toei subway asakusa line at 5.51am to start early to Toyama. It takes 3 mins to reach Asakusa (tobu/Subway at 5.54. From here, there is a yellow transfer box that says leaving at 6.01 to reach Ueno at 6.05am. I pay at oshiage station Y280 and it will cover my whole journey to Ueno right, assuming I already bought in advance the shinkasen ticket at the airport.

My question is can I make it in 6 mins to get out of the coach and find the transfer train.

Also at Ueno, I think I have to get out of the station and look for the Shinkasen ticket entrance to go to track 19 which leaves at 6.22 to Toyama, again very tight timing.

Thank you again.

u can take earlier trains from oshiage to give urself more time to find the platforms. there are trains as early as 5am from oshiage. and even if u cant make it for the 6.22 shinkansen, there is another one at 6.34

Hi which area in Tokyo is recommended for staying if using airbnb? Shinjuku area is expensive. Any other outer areas that are still convenient (by train)?
