We will visit Japan for the second time next spring right after Golden week. We will stay 9 or 10 days with trip to Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Kanazawa & Shirakawago. Also with various day trip from Tokyo such as Ashikaga flower park, Hitachi seaside flower park and Shibazakura. I have few confirmations and thank in advance for your help:
1) I would like to confirm that 7 day JR & JR Tokyo Wide Pass will cover these destinations.
2) I am not to sure about Ashikaga
3) I will buy JR before entering Japan, and can buy JR Tokyo wide pass once I arrive Narita at JR office.
4) I assume that all seats are reserved, but I hope after Golden week, the travel will be lighter, are there trains without seat reservation? so we have flexible time while traveling, just seat where there is available.
