Travel by Bullet Train 新幹線の旅

Tokaido bullet trains

If you want to travel many different area in Japan,
I highly recommend to use “Japan Rail Pass

It’s really reasonable and flexible.

From Aomori, top of north in Honsyu, to Kagoshima, bottom of south in Kyushu,
you can use bullet trains in fixed price.

Price is fixed by days, 7 days, 14 days and 21 days.

For example, my family made a plan to go Japan for 10 days.
Our flight lands at Tokyo airport, Narita. Thus, first 5 days stay in Tokyo.
After that, we visit Mt. Fuji in Shizuoka, where is between from Tokyo to Kyoto.
And staying in kyoto for 4 days for sight-seeing and going to Hiroshima last day.

Mt. Fuji

From Hiroshima, we return back to Kansai, where is Kyoto and Osaka area, and flight back to our home country from Kansai airport.
So, we use bullet trains from Tokyo to Shizuoka, Shizuoka to Kyoto, Kyoto to Hiroshima and Hiroshima to Osaka.

If we use general train ticket, total price would be ¥36,870

Tokyo to Shizuoka

¥3,260
¥2,920

Shizuoka to Kyoto

¥5,460
¥4,490

Kyoto to Hiroshima

¥6,300
¥4,490

Hiroshima to Shin Osaka

¥5,460
¥4,490

total=¥36,870

Our 7 days rail pass is ¥28,300,
so ¥8,570 is cheaper!!! approximately US $80

I recommend you use this ticket to travel Japan.
inside of car
