Your review By sharing your experiences, it would help other travellers to best enjoy their Japan holiday and to improve the quality of our products and services. Thank you!

I love japan. I travelled to different parts of japan 4 times using japan rail pass within the last three years. I would love to go back soon.

The train service is very reliable, efficient and punctual. It is very easy to use the japan rail pass. You can find good business hotels in the the main cities. Most of the hotels I stayed were clean and comfortable. I always choose the hotels which are close to the main train stations to save time travelling from one place to another. Also I choose to stay in one hotel in the main city for the entire trip using regional rail pass to save the hassle of carrying the luggage from one place to another.

Overall, I really enjoyed my trips to Japan as the people are very polite and easy to get around without a car.

Your review I have been fortunate to travel widely across the globe. Japan is my all time favourite destination. I have visited many times over the past decade.
Everyone met is courteous, polite and hospitable. Customer service is the best I have experienced worldwide. The environment is immaculate; the main streets in Tokyo almost gleam.
I could write a book describing all the sights I have been lucky to see with my now extended set of Japanese friends.
Two things though: Kinkakuji in Kyoto, and try to stay one night in the Park Royal hotel within the Landmark Tower of Yokohama (get a special deal by advance booking and pray for good weather for spectacular views towards Mt Fuji and the awesome impact of the whole Tokyo Bay metropolis at night from between 59 and 70 floors up!).

Your review The Hyperdia online train timetable and journey planner in English helped us plan our trip through the 3 main islands of Kyushu, Honshu and Hokkaido.
The Japan Rail staff were excellent in sorting our different seat reservations (free) once we got the Japan Rail Pass.
There are also excellent downloadable city guides in English on the JNTO website (Japan National Tourist Office).
Lots of the cities had cheap hop on hop off tourist buses for the main sites and maps in English.
So we could do the whole thing on our own. Many people, even in the remoter areas spoke some English.
We had a great time.

Your review The Japan rail pass was excellent. As well as covering full circle around tokyo it served many places around japan for use on the bullet trains which can be quite expensive. My advice is if you are only planning to stay in tokyo, fares are fairly cheap though you have to pay everytime you get on another line and it can be confusing. if you are travelling out definitely get the rail pass. JR staff were very helpful too. Also a tip when travelling about, do a seat reservation a day or two before at the JR resvervation booth/shop as certain bullet trains can book out and you may find there isn't a seat for the train you want.

Your review I had a great time throughout my stay in Japan, half of which I spent travelling with my son who lives and works in Tokyo. The major cities of Tokyo and Kyoto are very different but equally fascinating places to visit. Life in Tokyo is vibrant and stimulating yet in the Ebisu district where my son has a flat it was similar to the back streets of Paris with little independent cafes. restaurants and boutique clothes shops. The smaller shrines and temples found in Kyoto are oasis of tranquility. The Ryokans and onsens in the North Japan Alps region are an experience not to be missed. Nor are the tropical islands surrounding Okinawa. Travelling by train in Japan is a joy with arrivals and departures on-time, comfortable seating and some magnificent views from the window - even the crowded Metro in Tokyo is fun to ride and you can use your JR pass on several lines. The traditional Japanese cuisine I experienced in all the areas I visited was outstanding and the people I met when travelling unaccompanied were uniformly friendly and helpful. Japan is a great country to visit and I will be heading back to catch the cheery blossom in April.

It is very traveller friendly and has something for everyone, no matter what kind of holiday or trip you are looking for. The rail pass also makes it so easy to get from city to city and can even be used on the local lines to get around the city. Everything in this country is both amazing and beautiful!

Your review The rail pass is good. But was disappointing to still have to buy rail tickets for other train journeys when the pass is already so expensive. Also, some of the journeys that came in the pass turned out to be cheaper when looking at the prices on line, so that too was disappointing.

Overall, it was easy to have the pass to make travelling easier but not sure if I would buy it again.

Your review This is my fourth travel to Japan, within the last 2 years and my third JR pass, though I usually buy the 21 days one. It was as brilliant as ever, easy to use, good savings. I especially appreciate unbelievable comfort and relaxing silence in Japanese trains (how I miss it now when having around screaming Brits and being hardly able to read on a bus even with my headphones at the top volume to cover the outside noise...) Well that proves the superiority of Japanese social behaviour and consideration for other people and the great quality of the transport :-) Thank you ! People, if you go to Japan, please respect the local customs: do not scream in the streats, don't talk loud on a bus or in a train and don't use your phone there either, it is considered extremely rude and upsets other passengers. And behave repectfully in temples and shrines: lower your voice and don't take pictures ! Here, the sermon is finished ;-) Enjoy the most wonderful country in the world :-))

We travel for a very busy time of the year (christmas/new year), the travelling experience around japan was quite good though.

We are looking forward to come back !!!

Your review Don't miss Kyoto. Hire a bike and/or walk to see the older parts of this wonderful city. The details count … the tiny shrines, specialist shops, alleys and streams.

If I had had the time, I would have taken even greater advantage of my rail pass. But it was worth it, even for a short stay.

One improvement I hope you pass to the rail authorities: please improve passenger information in case of delays. There was a fire by the track when I was traveling to Tokyo. The information was hopeless; just bland reassurances that safety checks were being carried out. Several of us passengers had planes to catch, and this lack of information about the length of the delay caused great stress and confusion. It was not the fault of the railways. We needed to know.

We only ate Japanese food and never had anything but good meals. People were kind, friendly and interesting. The countryside and temples and castles were beautiful. And the hot mineral spas were as enjoyable as I remembered. the Christmas decorations on Ginza were great fun and we found good restaurants in the little roads off the Ginza.

Your review A great way to get around. The service is super efficient. We did not get the pass for the super fast train due to cost and this was frustrating at times. Trains are very clean, but seats are not very comfortable compared to some of the better trains in the UK Watching the trains be cleaned and ready for service again is an experience in itself. Amazing efficiency. Lovely cultural touches such as the guards bowing before entering every carriage, such a polite country.
