The Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass) is a great way of paying for your trains if you’re travelling around Japan. It’s excellent value compared to individual tickets for the shinkansen (bullet train). However, at £230 it does add a lot to your budget. Here are some alternatives to the JR Pass that might save you money, especially if you’re just visiting one area of Japan (eg Hokkaido, Kyushi, Kansai or Tohoku). There are various options including regional passes, the Tokyo Wide Pass for day trips from Tokyo, the Flex Ticket from JR Tokai Tours and the budget Platt Kodama for the bullet train. There are also discount train ticket packages for popular tourist destinations from Japanese rail companies (eg passes from Tobu and Odakyu Railways, like the Hakone Free Pass and passes for Nikko).
