Special FeatureTravel Japan by Train
Every day of the year in Japan, trains run along beautiful coastlines, through steep mountain valleys, across cold, snowswept plains... If you are in a hurry, take a Shinkansen “bullet train,” but if you have the time, why not travel at a slower pace on a local train to fully enjoy the changing landscape? Japan’s rail network is vast and offers so many travel possibilities. To help you choose your route to a railway adventure, the lines mentioned in this issue of Nipponia are shown on this map, with corresponding page links.
