Riding the Train in Japan (Erik’s Guide to Japan Book 1)
The Japanese rail system is one of the modern wonders of the world. Trains connect every major city (and most minor ones) in Japan, and if you are visiting the country soon, chances are good you will end up riding one. Unfortunately, the sheer scope and size of the train network often makes it very confusing for first time visitors to get around.
What better way to learn about Japan than getting advice from someone who lives there? Author Erik Curre is a long-time Tokyo resident and veteran rider of the Tokyo trains. In this short guide he shares with the reader all the bits of wisdom he has accumulated from years of daily commuting through some of the world’s busiest train stations. Navigate the Japanese rail system in confidence after learning about the following subjects:
1. How to deal with crowds
2. How to use a ticket machine
3. How to buy a train pass
4. Navigating through train stations
5. What to do upon arriving at Narita Airport
