Japan is a fascinating country! It is easily one of the top places I have visited to date (even if I only visited a teeny, tiny small fraction of one of the islands in a country comprised of 6,852 islands). The combination of culture, people, food, and scenery all contribute to the environment which makes it exponentially different than any other place I've traveled. Despite the crowd of tourists that flock to the country, there are no shortages of activities as Japan is incredibly unique. Here are some simple unwritten (but now written) rules to keep in mind as you explore all that is Japan.

This will be especially useful to those that plan to travel to different cities throughout Japan by train. Pass holders are granted unlimited rides on all JR railways until the pass expires.
