just knowing that when you get to the train station all you need to find was the JR counter was easy because the train station can be very overwhelming and overcrowded . The rail pass was very good value for money and I highly recommend it .

It was quite easy to use around the country .and we went for Green ,so reserving eas even easier .It would be great if extended days on the Pass were available. We had 25 days in Japan but could only get the max.21day Pass. So needed to pay for more rail travel.on top of JRPass.

We really got out money's worth with our Japan Rail Pass - it was so easy to activate and use. Riding on the Shinkansen was half the fun! Highly recommend if you plan to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto, Kyoto to Hiroshima etc
