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 :-))
