Traveling on the Shinkansens is also a great way to travel, but riding the local trains opens up a different side of Japan, revealing natural beauty you can get in no other way. Japan is filled with local train lines, each with their own personalities. Trains that run through valleys, trains that run along the Japan Sea and even steam locomotives that run through the forest with steam coming out the smokestack. Buy a bento lunch box, jump aboard and enjoy Japan. A side of Japan you’ll never get with the faster trains.
