I booked my holiday without realising that Silver week fell in the middle of it. I was wondering how busy are the trains likely to be? Specifically I am due to travel by shinkansen from Okayama to Hakata on the 20th Sept. I will be travelling late morning, will I be able to take the bike without causing huge annoyance?

It won't be that bad on the trains. Roads and airports are way worse.

Not that bad. Obon is kinda obligatory travel for families. Silver week is more informal.

This may all be moot. My knee started playing up on my ride last night. It did this at this time last year & I had to take a break from the bike.
