    Rail. The train system is extensive and fairly reasonable as far as price goes. Depending on where you're going - the speed of transport is fantastic.

    Japan has one of the best rail systems in the world, if not the best. You can get to almost anywhere in the country using them and in record time as they go extremely fast. They are called bullet trains for a reason. I made another post in this forum about getting a Rail Pass and if you will be travelling all over the country it is really worth it. You can also reserve seats for free using it as well.

    Everyone takes the train in Japan, though they're not all bullet trains (Shinkasen). They are reasonably priced, clean, and efficient. For the "last mile" most people use bicycles. I would not advise renting a car in Japan, because parking is very scarce.

    Re: Transportation facilities in Japan

    I have a friend who lives in Japan, and she takes the train pretty much every day. The system is fairly extensive and efficient, and she says that they even have WiFi! As far as public transportation goes, Japan seems like one of the easiest places to get around as a tourist without spending too much money.
