They are arriving in Tokyo on the 24th and we will be heading to Kyoto on the 26th. We want to use the Rail Pass for the shinkansen to Kyoto. I wanted to reserve seats to make sure we can get there but it says that if you want to use the Rail Pass you have to show it as you reserve tickets. (seen here:http://www.japanrailpass.net/eng/e
Does this mean I have to wait until they get here (24th) to reserve tickets for the 26th? I'm afraid the trains will fill up by then. Has anyone done this? Any advice? Thanks!
