My family and I (2 adults and 1 two yo) will be going to Japan from April 27-May 7. We will travel to Tokyo for 4 days followed by Kyoto then Osaka. This is our first time traveling to Japan. I have a few questions:
1. Should we get the 7 day rail pass or just book destination to destination train tickets?
2. For the rail pass; is it possible to make a seat reservation prior to entering japan? I am concerned about seating as this is during golden week?
3. Do all hotels offer the luggage transfer svc? -I will be staying at the Keio Plaza in Tokyo, Grand Prince Hotel in Kyoto, and the Ritz Carlton in Osaka.
Thanks again for any advice.
