Please try your utmost to inform Denis as soon as possible. Thank You. ***

 

It is highly recommended that people going to Japan obtain a travel pass with Japanese Rail for the whole trip. It is far cheaper to pay for all the travelling up-front with one pass, than pay for each journey on the day.

Go to Japan Travel Centre with the link below, and click on Japan Rail Pass. Get it before you go.
