Book NOW!! 2018 Year-end and 2109 New year PEAK is approaching!

If you are planning to take Shinkansen between December 28th and January 6th for this year, we recommend you to book your tickets NOW.

 

Shinkansen is crowded during this period

Shinkansen will be crowded from end-December to early-January, and will be hectically crowded from Friday December 28th to Sunday January 6th, as during this period many Japanese return to their hometown and it is also a peak season for tourists from inside / outside Japan. 
It is likely that you have to line up for Shinkansen and end up standing during the ride, if you do not reserve your seats beforehand.

The Japan Railways group accepts reservation from one month before travel date

Many people want to book tickets during those peak periods as soon as they fix their travel dates. However, the Japan Railways (JR) group accepts reservation from one month before travel date. You can see some people standing in a line at stations in the morning to buy tickets for peak periods one month later.

Shinkansen-Ticket.com buys on the ticket release day if tickets for a date more than one month after are ordered

We, Shinkansen-Ticket.com, on the other hand, can take orders for tickets even next year.
When we receive orders of tickets for a date more than one month ahead, we securely purchase those tickets on the JR release day, one month before that customer's travel date.

If you plan to take Shinkansen during the peak periods, ask us to reserve tickets once your traveling dates are fixed. We will securely reserve your tickets/seats.
