Your review Amazing country and people, do make effort to learn at least some Japanese and respect the culture and customs.

The rail pass is invaluable and a must have, very easy to use. The Japanese transport system is pretty much perfect and is never late.

Your review I purchased a 14 day Japan Rail Pass which cost £287 before I left. Unfortunately I lost it on the day of arrival having only used it from the airport to central Tokyo. The loss was my fault however I have an issue with the fact JR would not re-issue the pass even though I had my receipt of purchase and all other documents relating to the purchase. In the UK with rail passess as long as you have your receipt of purchase a new rail pass is always re-issued. I had a great time in Japan but this situation almost ruined my trip given I had to purchase Shinkansen tickets on top of what I had already spent. I think JR need to review their policy.

Your review Great trip. One suggestion on the rail pass..... maybe have separate days rather than consecutive. Consecutive places pressure to travel every day.

Overall though its great value and problem free at the stations.

Your review I've been to Japan several times now, and purchasing a JR Rail pass is ALWAYS an essential! With it, I've been to so many places I can't even list them all!

Love everything about the country - sights, tradition, people and culture. Everywhere you go is always clean and well maintained (eps. any form of public transport) - unlike major western cites like London, Paris, New York.

Food is amazing, however if you are one of these 'conservative' people who won't try anything they are not familiar with or don't like the look or sound of, then forget it. The Japanese love eating, so if you are just going to stick to western stuff like McDonalds, then you are missing on a MASSIVE experience. Personally, I would go and try: Okonomiyaki, Takoyaki, Yakiniku, Macha Ice cream and Kakigori at least once. At the VERY least, go to Yoshinoya and have a "tamanegi gyuudon"!

People are great - consodering the language barrier, they will still try to help you if they can. Goes without saying, but just remeber to be nice and respectful - politeness goes a long way.

Which of these did you enjoy the most? C. People
Your review This was my second time in Japan. I spent a day in Tokyo before moving on to Yamagata for a conference. My time in Tokyo was a short and i tried some of the One-day itineraries from the internet. This worked well although I did get lost a couple of times, probably more related to jetlag than anything else. Do go to the Tuskiji Fish Market if you can....an absolute gem!

Moving around Tokyo and then on to Yamagata by rail was easy since I had the JR pass and the signs were in English. As always the Japanese people were incredibly friendly and patient. If you are travelling around make sure you get the JR pass, saves you money and so much hassle.

Your review The Japanese railway is super efficient. Trains are clean, on-time, frequent and comfortable. The JR network covers all the cities with key tourist attractions. Travelling on your own is very easy as they provide English announcements and information for main trains and at stops that tourists use. Japan is the safest country that I have ever visited, you don't need to worry about having things stolen or gettng mugged - making it ideal for exploring on your own using the super eficient train network.

Your review People were really friendly and helpful when I was in Japan. It can be hard to find places without google maps and Japanese language but people were really great at helping.

The JR pass was really value for money especially as we used the bullet trains. The only times we struggled were when we were trying to use the pass in Tokyo as some of the lines aren't JR but other companies so it can be confusing but we also bought a Suica subway card and then we had most bases covered.

We also couchsurfed which was great and helped us save so much money on accommodation.

The country, its people, and a way of life are so unique and worth experiencing, that I encourage almost everyone I know to visit Japan at least once! It is like no other country in the world - and the food is absolutely super!

We met friendly and helpful people, experienced Tokyo at its busiest time during Golden Week, saw amazing natural scenery wherever we went and a fascinating mix of modern construction, technology, and historical sites. The Japan Rail Pass made travelling around Japan very easy and we were impressed by the railway system and its operation and efficiency.

Your review Travel is easy try to avoid changing the Rail Pass at the airport the queues are terrible. Easier to change at one of the stations in Tokyo.

Travel is easy and the people are lovely and will always help you even if they cannot speak English, they do their best.

Kobe is worth a visit and Hiroshima was amazing and the lovely island near by.

Your review Japan Rail Pass makes it very easy to get around.

And it is a great value for money. (Probably the best).

The fact that one has to use the manned ticket counters does not matter at all, since there are seldom any waiting lines for these. Reserving seats for the different trains is very very easy ( at the JR ticket offices), and gives you convenient schedule informations at the same time.

Your review Not our first visit to Japan, and we have purchased the JR Pass many times before. Frankly, I would not plan a holiday there without one! If you do not mind spending time (sometimes a lot of time) on trains (and these trains are pretty terrific), there are such a lot of places to visit. A great buy.

Your review The Pass was useful, and saved us a time and money( i think), although i dont think it is neccesarly worth it unless you plan on using the shinkansen( bullet trains a lot) we paid £350 for the passes each, for 2 weeks, and i belive a few people told me the fare from Tokyo to kyoto was about £85 one way, so it depends on how much traveling you plan to do, for us i think it was worth it as we used the bullet trains a fair amount( about 5-6 times)

the only downside to this pass is that you cannot ride the express bullet train (nozomi), you can only ride the one which has more stops and is a bit longer, but we still used nozomi as we was not aware we couldn't use them, un till the very last day when a conductor said, none of the previous conductours had mentioned it.

what i would say is do some calculations before rushing ahead and buying one, as it may work out cheaper to not buy one.

overall Japan was an amazing country, and the JR pass allowed us to travel with a lot less stress.

Your review Excellent service from JTC. I work near their London office so it was easy to use their next-day collection service. We exchanged our vouchers for JR passes at Nagasaki. You have to enter/exit stations by the manned gate when you travel but never had any trouble. And the Shinkansen is as amazing as ever :)

Your review The Japan Rail Pass "does what's on the tin" as it were - enables you to travel at will on Japan's excellent railway system. Obvously it is only worthwhile if you intend to travel to and from various cities, but if you are only in Japan for a week this is the thing to do. It will save you thousands of yen in train fares and saves time as well as you don't have to go to the ticket machines and use the automatic barriers. The only thing you have to remember is you have to go to the office by the barrier and show it to the ticket person (often they only glance at it as they assume all foreigners have one...), you can't use it on first class/green car trains and obviously it doesn't apply on private railways or municipal subway trains.

Only real downside is the price can vary depending on what time of year you book one. This price has increased recently.

Recently a new JR pass came into use with a ticket stuck to it - when you use it for the first time the ticket person must stamp it.

The JR Pass is your best friend in Japan!

Your review this was my 4th visit to japan- every time I have made good use of the rail pass.Japanese trains and rail travel are superb-efficient, courteous staff, stations with food you can actually enjoy eating, and great facilities.I recommend a trip to the "japanese Alps", which I did last time-wonderful scenery, away from the hustle and bustle of city life and easy to get to by train!I love the culture and historical sites , but also the food and the people .
