Getting Around in Japan

How to get around in -- and to -- Japan, by car, train, bus and plane.

Flying domestically in Japan lets you cut down on travel time and can be a competitively priced alternative to riding on the Shinkansen bullet train. Making air travel easy between cities is the dozens upon dozens of domestic airports all over the nation. But there are pitfalls to flying. Here's how to avoid them.

"Little Book" Packs Big Punch
Tuttle's "The Little Book of Japan" fills its pages with beautiful images of all that makes Japan awesome and ties the photos together with breezy prose about the country, its culture, traditions and history. It's small enough for the backpack and fun enough to keep on the coffee table, whether you're planning a trip to Japan, are already there, or just want to dream about going.
