"There is the Japan Rail Pass...." Japan Transportation Tip by clemens

Japan Transportation: 317 reviews and 328 photos

There is the Japan Rail Pass. One can only buy it offroad - it's impossible to get it in Japan.
Well it entitles one to use nearly every railway line in Japan - even the cool Shinkansen (Rocket trains). And one can also reserve seats for free.

Type: Train
