When purchasing Limited Express tickets and reserved seat tickets of trains that cross over to the next day, such as the Night Express Trains and Overnight Trains, the actual start date is not the date of the station where the train line starts, but the actual date of the designated station that you board from. If you board from a station in the middle of the train route, please check the date of purchase tickets.
When getting on a Limited Express train along the route on October 2nd at 12:20 midnight on a train that departs at 11pm on October 1 from the station where the train line starts, on the JR WEST ONLINE TRAIN RESERVATION, your ride is considered to be on October 2nd. Please book accordingly.
【Attention: regarding reserved seat sale dates】
The sale date and time of reserved seating starts at 10am, one month prior of the date from the station where the train line starts (the same day of the previous month). As in the prior Limited Express train example above, tickets go on sale from 10am on September 1st, regardless of whether you board or get off a station down along the route after midnight.
However, should you book on the JR WEST ONLINE TRAIN RESERVATION website, in the example of purchasing a reserved seat on an Express Train above on October 2nd, the seat will be on sale starting September, since the release will be started from 10am, one month before the ride day, in the case of the express train of the above example, the designated seat of the ride on October 2nd , the ticket will be on sale from 10am on September 2nd.
