About Us

Japan Rail Tickets is a service of Fast Train Ltd. We run two of the most popular web sites for international visitors coming to Japan - Tokyo Cheapo and Japan Cheapo.

We’ve been dispensing travel advice on the Japan Rail Pass and the best way to get around since 2012.

The aim of this site is to provide a single point of information for all the rail travel options that are available throughout Japan. If you’ve found any inaccurate information or if you think we could improve the information that we offer, jump over to the contact page and let us know.
