Japan by Rail

Japan by Rail

Japan's railway are amongst the best in the world with cutting-edge technology, incredible punctuality and an excellent safety record. Providing access to all major tourist destinations, train travel is the ideal way to explore this fascinating country. Trains range from leisurely Futsu local stopping services to speedy Shinkansen bullet trains. Whichever type of train you travel on, they will all be clean, comfortable and modern. Stations in Japan are no different. With signs and departure boards in English as well as Japanese, most visitors find even the busiest stations surprisingly easy to navigate.
Many train routes within Japan take you through stunning scenery. Here's a few of our favourites:
Tokyo to Kyoto - look to the right as you approach Mishima Station, if you're lucky, Mount Fuji will appear in all its majestic beauty!
Takayama and Nagoya - spectacular glimpses of the alpine heartland of Japan are provided in abundance on this rail journey.
Tokyo to Hakone - upgrade to the 'Romancar' for wonderful views of Fuji Hakone National Park through the large picture windows.
