Luxury Train Journeys Japan

There’s a lot to love about visiting Japan, but one of the greatest pleasures is Japan luxury train travel. The high-tech rail network and ever-expanding timetable of super speedy bullet train services means getting around this long, linear country is a complete breeze. In fact, there should be little or no need to ever sit in a car on the entire trip, so your time in Japan will also be extremely sustainable.

Our team of Japan experts are on hand to tailor-make an itinerary based around your exact specifications, and including Japan luxury train tickets throughout. This being Japan, the trains run precisely on time (to the second, sometimes), and given the potential language difficulties we also provide passengers with information on exactly which platform trains leave from and even where to stand on the platform. You can also expect the station staff to bow reverently as the train leaves the platform. Not something you see every day on Southern Rail services.

Once on board you'll have the chance to see this beautiful country speeding by, and we'll always try to book seats with the best views, such as on the righthand side for the journey from Tokyo to Kyoto to see sacred Mount Fuji in all its glory. So good is the network of bullet trains now that you can travel throughout the main island of Honshu, and the two smaller islands of Hokkaido in the north-east and Kyushu in the south-west. The southern island of Shikoku is also on the train network, meaning that Japan luxury train travel is possible throughout the country except for the further flung tropical islands of Okinawa.
