Easy to travel all over Japan. Traveling was also super fast. We were able to see many sights outside of the city and between cities. Reservations were oftentimes not needed, and we were able to get good, comfortable seats every time.

The Japan Rail Pass and the Japanese rail system was a wonderful experience. However, the service provided by the seller of the package, Japan Experience, was a bit a less than perfect. We had bought a phone chip as part of the package. We were charged for the chip but we did not get it.
