Travel within Japan

Jump to last reply

Hello All,

Hoping you can provide some insight into travel while in Japan. I've been reading some information on the Japan Guide which is super helpful, but want to get confirmation on my readings as I think thats always a good idea and there is a lot of information! We are looking for the fasting transportation options for the following:

-Tokyo to Hakone
-Hakone to Kyoto
-Kyoto to Tokyo

Tokyo to Hakone:
From what I can tell, we will need to do the Odakyu ( - is this accurate?

Hakone to Kyoto:
*Still looking into this

Kyoto to Tokyo:
Shinkansen (bullet train)

A few questions:
1) Would you recommend purchasing online before we depart US for Japan? Or should we be fine waiting until we arrive in Japan to purchase?
2) Would you recommend reserved vs. non-reserved, and also any recommendation around ordinary car seating vs. green car seating?
3) Any other tips?

Thank you in advance!
