Which is better: the Japan Rail Pass or flying?
It’s almost always makes more sense to get a Japan Rail Pass. The Bullet Trains are famed for their speed and a Japan Rail Pass usually works out to be cheaper than a plane if you’re going to be travelling around a lot. The shinkansen are extremely comfortable and spacious (especially compared to a train).
You’ll also get to see more of the countryside and there’s a lot less hassle catching a train than catching a plane. It’s also considered a cultural experience by many travellers. Now, if we can just build a bullet train from Australia…
