Japan is one of those countries that travel writers dream about. Each little town, village and city seems completely unique and different from the last. With each new area we explore, a whole new realm of stories, legends and fables are waiting to be revealed. It may be something of a cliché, but Japan truly is one of the few places on Earth were no two towns are ever the same.
Japan has a transportation network that extends from the heights of its famed Shinkansen bullet trains down to bicycles. While the cost of traveling long distances can appear expensive at first, thrifty travelers can find a variety of discounts to make trips more affordable. Be sure to explore your options thoroughly to find what's best for your budget.
