When you plan a trip to Japan, hotel reservation and transportation might be the two biggest headaches.
For those who plan to use Shinkansen (Japan’s super express train), I highly recommend you use the Japan Rail Pass.
Japan Rail Pass is a train ticket especially designed for foreign travelers. There are six major train companies in Japan and their services are connected throughout Japan. You can use almost every Shinkansen, local trains, buses, and even ferries operated by those six companies with this ticket.
They offer two types of tickets, Green-Cars (luxury seats) and normal seats. Each type has three different versions based on the period of validity; 7 days, 14 days, and 21 days.
For Japanese travelers, a Shinkansen ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto in a regular compartment is ¥13,080 ONE WAY. This shows how valuable this Rail Pass is!
There are some rules and restrictions, so please visit http://www.japanrailpass.net/en/index.html for more information.
