All at the train stations are amazing. They are cities unto themselves. They have hotels, food galore and more shop for shopping than you have time for.
They are all exceptionally clean and organized.
While daunting and overwhelming, they work brilliantly. It's possible to master train travel. Just pay attention.
The trains running on time. If it says that the train is leaving at 15:05,it does! You need to be early. If you are a minute late, your train has left without you!
All announcements in the station and on the trains are made in Japanese and English.
The train system is a marvel. We should be ashamed of the train system in the US by comparison.
Definitely go by train.More
