Message from Iloveyakitory:

Re: train pass I buy my rail pass from Iace Travel, and they have information about it there. There are some Japanese rail pass sites.... http://www.japanrail.com/JR_japanrail... and www.iace-usa.com ... you have to buy the rail pass outside of Japan.

Sometimes I go to the train station and hope on the next Shinkansen leaving and go to where it is heading. One nice thing about having the rail pass it is good on all JR modes of transportation... rail, bus, boat.
