Japan Rail Holidays

Japan is a unique destination with incredible futuristic cities, rich culture and stunning natural beauty. The famous bullet trains are well renowned for their punctuality, comfort, safety and for travelling up to an impressive 186mph (300km/h), which make them an excellent way to get around and discover this wonderful country. 

Not only are the bullet trains of Japan a great way to get from one fantastic destination to another, but also, with most having large windows, it's a great way to capture the changing views as you whizz across the country.
