Reserved Limited Express Trains 2007/10/31 08:35
Nikko
I would like to go from Shinjuku sta. to Nikko on the 23rd of November (Labor Day) . I understand that the limited express train to Nikko is reserved seat only. My question...should I reserve the seats and purchase the tickets the same day or the day before?

Mike,

If seats are still available, you can reserve right up until the time of departure. However, being a holiday Saturday in a season when Nikko is a popular destination, the train could well be fully booked. I would strongly urge that you reserve seats as soon as possible.

. . . was saying, Nov. 23rd is when the lower Nikko area would be in fall colors (maybe a tad late). DO NOT wait for the day before.

I plan my trips at least two months ahead of time. I go to JTB so they can book my airline tickets and Shinkansen the first day you can (usually around 2 months beforehand).

Mike in case you can't get reserved tickets, you can take Tobu trains out of Asakusa, they run many unreserved seat trains to nikko as well, just in case you can't get a reserved seat, you're not out of luck.

The JR/Tobu limited express train out of Shinjuku is more expensive then the reserved and unreserved trains going out of Asakusa. Just FYI
