The Most Cost-effective! The cheapest way to travel throughout Japan.

Hello everyone! This is Yuhi from JapanSync.

In this issue, I will introduce some inexpensive ways to get to various places in Japan! We will also be updating the list of recommended sightseeing spots, so please stay tuned!

When traveling within Japan, it is necessary to take into consideration the differences in distance between destinations and the islands. Therefore, it is essential to divide your travel into different categories.

In the case of traveling within Honshu
The most popular and inexpensive way to travel within Honshu is to take an overnight bus.
Prices vary depending on the season and the day of the week, but the prices are as follows.

Osaka⇄Tokyo: from 1,500 yen (6 hours)
Hiroshima⇄Tokyo: from 3,500 yen (13 hours)
Aomori⇄Tokyo 3900yen~ (11hours)
Kanazawa⇄Tokyo: from 2800 yen (8 hours)

Overnight buses are the cheapest means of transportation within Honshu. On the other hand, the Shinkansen is the safest and easiest way to travel within Honshu, although it is more expensive.

For destinations farther away from Honshu, such as Kyushu and Hokkaido, the most popular and inexpensive method is the Shinkansen. The most popular and inexpensive way to travel is by air. With the recent popularity of LCCs, it is becoming increasingly possible to travel from Tokyo to other destinations for less than 4,000 to 10,000,000 yen. Since night buses and trains take too much time, it can be said to be overwhelming even when cosmetic calculations are made from a time perspective.

Have you ever heard of the Seishun 18 Ticket?
It is a ticket that allows unlimited travel on JR trains for 5 days for 10,000 yen. Some Japanese students use this ticket to return home. Although it takes longer, it is a great way to travel through places in Japan that you would not normally go, and it is a great way to experience the flavor of the country.
