I’m hardly the first to say it, but public transport in Japan just can’t be beat. Shinkansen, express trains, local trains, subways, buses, ferries and street cars – we tried them all!

In Tokyo, we stayed about 3 minutes subway ride from Shinjuku Station — the largest station in the world. Simply mind-boggling, there are over 200 exits! Needless to say we got lost very easily, but there was always someone offering to point us in the right direction
