Made travelling between Cities easier. More information regarding using the pass ie.. seat reservation, we thought you had to book a seat everytime you travelled.However a must on busy routes also did not know you could just hop on a train too. At times it was difficult to book seats, as ticketing offices had large queues.

We exchanged our voucher at Tokyo Station and made our first booking on the Shinkansen to Kyoto. There were no queues and the staff spoke excellent English. Our travel on the Shinkansen was fantastic - fast, smooth, clean, comfortable and always on time. We were concerned at the short time we had to change trains at Okayama on our return to Tokyo but need not have been. We stepped off the first train and the next train to arrive at the same platform was our connecting train. The staff are very knowledgeable about what will work and what won't. The pass covered our trip on the Narita Express back to the airport from Shinjuku and also the JR lines which supplement the Metro in Tokyo. It makes travel very affordable. Our only surprise was that we had expected luggage compartments on the trains (we had booked first class tickets) but there were none and we had to hoist our bags into overhead racks. In my view this is the best way to travel in Japan.
