My Japan Rail Pass for 7 days. It shows the start and end date.
Before I left for Japan I bought the Japan Rail Pass in Singapore for SGD $456 which entitled me to 7 days of unlimited travel on both ordinary and the Shinkansen (bullet train).
The bullet train is fantastic. The interior is spacious,and looks like an aircraft. In fact, it sounds like one too. And those of you who have a bladder problem will be pleased to learn that the toilets are super clean! Haha. In more than 40 years of operation it has never met with any accident.
And it's fast as it can reach speed of up to 300 kph. From Tokyo to Kyota, a distance of 471 km takes it only about 2hrs 15 min
It's worth buying the Japan Pass. With it I travelled as far south as Hiroshima, and other cities like Kobe, Osaka, Nara and Kyoto.
