Buy a JR Pass
Zipping through the Japanese countryside on a bullet train is a must, especially if you’re traveling with kids. It’s also a quick and convenient method of getting from one place to another. Thanks to the bullet trains, you can base your family in one city, like Osaka or Tokyo, and take day trips to the country’s other cities and attractions. Depending on how much train travel you plan to do, you’ll likely save money by purchasing JR Passes for each member of your family.
