I got my Japan Railpass. (*_*)b This is actually the first time I get to use it. As some of you might know, you cannot get it when you're a resident of Japan as it's meant for tourists. FINALLY I can use this as well. (^____^)b It's the 14 day pass and I got it from here: www.japan-experience.com Once I'm back from my trip, I'll let you know in detail how much I saved using this pass.
