Hi I'm planning to ride the sagano scenic train on Nov 25th. I called up JR ticket office to make the reservation today. The staffs told me the tickets are all sold out to the travel agent. Do you have any idea where else to buy the ticket in advance? Or any extra ticket will issue out due to peak season? I won't mind to stand in the train.

It is the busiest day of the entire year. I am afraid if the JR offices in the Kansai Region are already booked out, it may be difficult to get seats.

I would try once more at a later point, as sometimes the tour companies release unsold seats a few days ahead of travel date.

Or you could try it in Arashiyama on the day, but you better go early during the day and be prepared to get a ticket for several hours later (or not at all).
