When it comes to exploring new destinations, nothing beats the convenience of public transport. As tourists, however, it can be a little overwhelming and confusing to navigate the new country or city, not to mention fishing for spare change in your pocket every time you need to ride. If you're planning a long trip in Japan, do yourself a favor and purchase the JR Pass!
Only available for tourists to purchase outside of Japan, the JR Pass allows you to hop on local and rapid trains and buses, and even ferries that are part of the Japan Railways Group that will take you from city to city. You can even choose from various types of fabulous packages: Ordinary, Green (first class) and special passes for specific areas. Also, options of validity period are available from 7 to 21 days. It's a great way to save money and experience the beauty of Japan with ease!
