Japan by train

girl travelling by train in TokyoIs an experience in itself. Once I passed the wallet shock of the Japan Rail Pass, I started to see the nice things it can do.

Most destinations are accessible by train – already went to Mount Fuji (Fuji-san) and castle Matsumoto (impressive Japanese fortification) but maybe more importantly by Japan Rail (JR) we can move around Tokyo pretty easily.

And going by rail (I assume the same is also for the subway) I can do a lot of people watching.

Every train ride is an adventure in itself, and not because of the chance of going in the wrong direction but because if the variety of people on the train.
