Rail holidays in Japan

Japan railway holidays probably trigger one clear vision with most people: the iconic shinkansen, or bullet trains, that whisk you around from city to city in stylish, speedy fashion. There’s no more convenient or enjoyable way to travel Japan which is why almost all visitors choose to get around by train. Pro tip: be sure and pick up a tasty bento box on the platform before setting off.
