Your review Japan was a fabulous country to visit with an abundance of remarkable historical sights, beautiful natural wonders, excellent food and a unique and interesting culture. The people there were always incredibly nice and helpful and, despite the language barrier, there were many information centres and English signs that made finding my way around relatively easy. The public transport system in Japan is also excellent; both efficient and easy to navigate. Using the JR Pass made travelling around the country very easy and hassle-free. My visit to Japan was an absolute pleasure and I would highly recommend it to others.

Your review The rail travel pass is a great way to see Japan because it has such a good train network. It's easy to reserve a seat, trains run on time and are clean. While getting to the places I visited, I had a window seat to watch the scenery go by, time to relax, write a diary, have a drink and a snack.

I spent all my time on Hokkaido and can thoroughly recommend it for an extended stay. Staying in Sounkyo, having an onsen and then climbing Mt Kurodake in Daisetsuzan was a real highlight.

Your review This is I believe at least the 10th time I go to Japan and the second or third time I use Japan travel Centre. I love the way my trip is entirely and meticulously planned in advance, so that I am clear of where I am going and when.

I would recommend the Marriott Courtyard hotel in Ginza, Tokyo excellent service and good reasonable price. In Kyoto I would recommend the Ritz-Carlton and if you don't stay there go to their Sushi restaurant one of the best I have ever eaten at....

Go near or on Mount Fuji it will provide you Divine-like sensations and feelings, the purity of the air, the emotions, the Beauty of the nature EVERYTHING there is wonderful. Finally you may want to visit different temples or shrines and Suza in the region of IZU.

Hope this helps

Your review found the staff at the Japan Travel Centre very helpful when asking any questions about travel and Japan in general. They made booking and collecting the JR Pass simple!

The JR Rail Pass was definitely good value for money, and I would recommend that people use it if they are carrying out a similar itinerary.

However I did not realise before travelling that there are a huge number of lines (not to mention trams, and underground trains). Sometimes the JR pass could not be used on certain journeys, so some extra fees may be incurred at times, which is something to be aware/look out for, and did affect which trips/journeys we did.

Over the three and a half weeks I was in the country, I had the opportunity to truly submerge myself in the culture and lifestyle, by visiting the beautiful and tranquil temples and shrines, the modern and expansive cities, the shops, getting to taste the delicious local cuisines and so much more. The JR pass made it really easy and convenient to get to all of the cities we travelled to.

Your review Japan Rail Pass is an absolute must if you are travelling around. It's such good value for money & so easy to use. You just have to organise slightly to pre book longer journey & Shinkansen but otherwise just show your pass & go. Staff were so friendly & helpful at all JR travel centres & stations making it easy for anyone. Also covers some other JR facilities like ferry to Miyajima island.
Excellent value - would score the whole JR network & service as 10/10.

Your review This was our second visit to Japan. We did more research into places to visit and spent longer in one place. We used the rail pass to get about as we found it is so easy to use the first time we went. We saw a poster for Iwakuni at one of the stations we traveled through on our way to Miyajima and decided to go and have a look - so glad we did. Well worth a visit. At Miyajima you just have to climb to the top on Mt Misen - the views are amazing.

Your review Visiting Japan always brings an array of pleasures and wonderful experiences, with train travel, especially Shinkansen, high on the list. It is best to get away from the big cities and train travel really helps with that. If there was one highlight from our visit this year to Hokkaido and Tohoku it would be the amazing, and little-known, temple complex at Hiraizumi, especially the magnificent golden hall. Amazing to think it is nearly 1,000 years old, and the temple complex dates back even longer. Highly recommended.

Your review An excellent 3 week trip in Japan visiting the main cities and attractions. The Japanese people are incredibly polite and helpful. Another thing which astounded me was how safe the country is, there is no issues with theft or pickpocketing. Everything in Japan was quite reasonably priced, especially food, for 1000 yen ($10) you can eat a good-sized, quality meal. The transport system is incredibly efficient, well sign-posted and the staff were all very pleasant. My highlight of Japan would be the Hakone National Park. I would recommend getting the "Free Pass", this allows you to take a mountain railway, ropeway and sailing boat around the park (you can see Mt Fuji on a clear day). Then after an action-packed day you can unwind in the onsen at your hotel. A truly remarkable country with incomparable beauty, definitely go if you are thinking about it.

Your review We had a great time in Japan. There are a lot of interesting things to see and it is a surprisingly easy country to travel around. The rail pass is fantastic - Japan probably has the best rail network in the world and the pass is very easy to use.

A good tip is to make seat bookings - we found the booking desks at most stations were good at dealing with non-Japanese speaking tourists. Also, if you download one of the english rail apps you can give a screen shot of the bookings you want to make and they will be able to do it for you.

The only area we had some problems with the pass was in Hokkaido - there's no shinkansen up there (yet) and the trains were much slower and very often full, meaning long trips standing in cramped conditions. However, the scenery in Hokkaido was fantastic and it's definitely worth including in your itinerary if you have time.

Your review I don't know where to start! The first impression I got of japan is that Japanese people put a lot of effort in presenting things, cites seems to be always very clean, food in restaurant always looks amazing (even take away food in supermarkets!) .

People themselves are very nice, polite and helpful . We never got stuck for very long as as soon we took our map out and looked around for direction there was always someone stopping and trying to help.

Languagewise, in most hotels, staff speaks a descent English . Outside it can be a bit more difficult to find some English speakers but again people tend to be very patient and helpful which makes learning some very basic Japanese very easy and enjoyable . Learning to read Katakana and Hiragana is a big bonus.

Also whatever you are into you will find things to do in japan from sport, art, architecture, food to car, video game...too many to list them all!

I could go on forever but the best is to discover it is to go yourself!!! I can't recommend people to visit this country enough and hope to be back over there again as soon as possible.
