Review

A find...Well researched. --The Japan Times (Tokyo)

Excellent guide --The Sunday Times (UK)

An invaluable companion --Railway Magazine (UK)

A must for any travel or train buff's collection... covers everything from Japanese words and phrases to railway timetables. This new edition includes recent extensions to several train lines plus further coverage of popular tourist destinations and less-traveled areas nearby, making it a fine recommendation. --California Bookwatch, USA, February 2013

An invaluable companion --Railway Magazine (UK)

This handy guidebook by Ramsey Zarifeh enables international visitors to make the most out of a visit to the country. --Railway Gazette, March 2013

An invaluable companion --Railway Magazine (UK)

If you plan to rely on trains in Japan to get around - which in most cases you should - then 'Japan by Rail' may prove more useful than the standard guidebook. --www.japanvisitor.com June 2013

From the Back Cover

The most affordable and efficient way to travel around Japan is by train with a rail pass

Japan is steeped in legend and myth, perhaps the greatest of which is the popular misconception that the country is simply too expensive to visit. The truth is that flights to Japan are cheaper than they’ve ever been, accommodation can be great value, while the warm hospitality which awaits every visitor costs nothing at all. The real secret to travelling around the country on a budget, however, is the Japan Rail Pass. With this pass you can travel on some of the fastest trains in the world as often as you like for as long as you please. Use this comprehensive guide in conjunction with a rail pass to get the most out of your trip to Japan.

  • Practical information – planning your trip; what to take; getting to Japan from Europe, North America and Australasia
  • City guides and maps – where to stay (all budgets), where to eat, what to see in 30 towns and cities; historical and cultural background
  • Kilometre-by-kilometre route guides – covering train journeys from the coast into the mountains, from temple retreat to sprawling metropolis; 34 route maps
  • Railway timetables – Bullet trains and all routes in this guidebook
  • Plus – Customs, etiquette, Japanese phrases
