How to get around
- By Air
- Air Lines in Japan
- By Land
There are, of course, some other international airports in Japan.
It is also possible to get to Japan by sea from South Korea, China, Russia and Taiwan.
Buses and taxis travel everywhere in town. Subways in large cities, such as Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, also enable travelers to go anywhere in the cities.
Ferries and boats connect Tokyo, Osaka and Kobe to Kyushu and Hokkaido.
All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines are two major carriers. Shinkansen (bullet trains) are slightly cheaper than airplanes and often faster. Shinkansen can get right into city centers, while airports are in inconvenient places.
If you have a Japan Rail Pass, you can take any fast trains and local trains of JR lines and it’s MUCH cheaper than flying.
