We arrive in Tokyo on the 6th April and are planning to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto on Tuesday 9th April. From the trouble we've had finding accom I am assuming it is busy due to cherry blossom season etc. My question is can I and if yes how do I pre book the train from Tokyo to Kyoto?? Also what do people recommend we do with regards to exchanging our JR voucher for the actual JR rail pass?? Can this only be done on the day we want it to start?
Thanks in advance
