Your review Which of those things did I enjoy the most? F. Other - 'All of the above'.

I first used a Japan Rail Pass in 2007. It was fantastic then and it is fantastic now. Between then and now I've spent a year living and working in Tokyo, the only real downside to which was the unavailability of the JR Pass to people on anything other than a tourist visa.

Suffice it to say it was great fun going back on a tourist visa with another JR Pass; effortlessly moving around to meet up with friends and ex-colleagues in cities across the country. I cannot recommend the product enough to people thinking of visiting Japan, be it their first time or otherwise.
Would you like to visit Japan again? Yes
