If you're planning to travel around one of these should save you lots of Yen! It's a Japan Rail pass. Several types are available - either valid for the whole country or just in certain parts. It proved invaluable to us. A voucher must be bought before you arrive in Japan and then this is exchanged for the pass at major JR stations. The trains themselves unbelievable...I'll mention them later!! The website is very helpful and multilingual too....
