We will be traveling to Japan with our 4-yr old son. Do we get both JR Pass and Suica cards? For JR Pass, 7-day or14-day pass? If we get JRP, should we get one for our son too if we want reserved seats in Shinkansen?

You could risk it with the train in the morning. You should be early enough to miss morning rush hour traffic. However, your safest bet at that point is to take a cab.A mixture of the two will also probably work. e.g. take a cab to Shinbashi/Yurakucho/Tokyo Station, use the Yamonote Line (Green) ...

Is it possible to buy train ticket from Osaka to Kanazawa early morning at 29-Dec-2016? I can't find any place that can reserve this from outside Japan. Is there any tips ?

Mari Takahashi Mari Takahashi, Living in Japan

If you are going to get on a local train, you don't need a pre-purchased ticket to get on.

You will get a ticket ...
