Catching a glimpse of Mount Fuji while traveling in style on a bullet train has never been easier and more accessible. Japan Experience, a leading provider of Japanese rail passes across the globe, has just published the second version of its 160-page Japan Railways guidebook. The guidebook, called The Japanese Railways, was released in its original format in February of this year through the company’s website Japan-Rail-Pass.com, and was an immediate hit with travelers worldwide.
The guide covers all possible rail travel throughout Japan with the use of a Japan Rail Pass. Beautiful graphics detail possible itineraries across the country’s four main islands using either a 7-, 14-, or 21-day national rail pass, and also includes information on travel on the major rail lines between major cities and attractions, including little-known detours and points of interest in between.
The Japanese Railways was written by the team of Japan experts at Japan Experience. The new publication also has tips and tricks for each major city in Japan, written specifically for overseas travelers wanting to make the most of their rail pass. Each page detailing a city, town, or other point of interest includes a range of accommodations and local foods to eat, chosen by these experts and oriented around central JR Stations at each destination.
“As the Japan Rail Pass grows in popularity, more and more travelers will have questions about how to best use their rail pass to see as much of Japan as possible,” said Claude Sauliere, CEO of Japan Experience. “Our guidebook fits in with our mission to help each traveler discover Japan for his or herself.”
The guidebook is included as a free gift with every rail pass order from Japan-rail-pass.com. Japan Rail Passes, which come in one, two, or three-week options, allow temporary visitors to Japan to travel for free across the four main islands on any of the JR company’s rail lines. These passes, available only to non-residents of Japan who are visiting for ninety days or less, are purchased as exchange orders before departure to Japan and exchanged upon arrival.
