the Japan Rail Pass
Shinkansen (Bullet train)
When visiting Japan, the experience of traveling in the famous bullet train should certainly be part of your trip. It is not only a very fast (max. operational speed up to 320 Km/h) and convenient way to get to your next destination, but you will be surprised by the punctuality, the cleanliness and of course the great service on board.
For example: train seats are turned around to face the direction of travel, thus helping to avoid motion sickness. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnU7YXWppJo
Travel by train freely
The Japan Rail Pass is a pass you can use to freely travel on the majority of trains in Japan for a selected time period (1,2 or 3 weeks). You save a substantial amount compared to buying separate tickets on the spot. The procedure is that you buy an “exchange order” at a sales point outside Japan, and when you arrive in Japan, you change this “exchange order” for the actual pass.
