Product description

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

About the Author

Ramsey Zarifeh was born in the UK but has spent most of his working life abroad. After graduating from Magdalene College, Cambridge, with a degree in English, he spent two years in Japan on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) scheme, before spending a year researching and writing the first edition of Japan by Rail.
He currently works as a broadcast and online journalist, and his travels take him as often as possible back to Japan.
For this third edition he was assisted by Andrew Picknell and Anna Udagawa, both of whom have lived and worked in Japan.
