  The Shinkansen
by salisbury3933

Train is a great way to get around Japan, especially if you purchase a JR railpass prior to entering the country.

Those of us who were living in Japan had to pay the same prices as the locals, and train travel is not cheap, but it gets you where you need to go quickly, and in comfort.

Type: Train

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
