Japan is known for being technologically advanced. This true of the transportation systems, as well. High-speed rail is the high-end way to travel. They have a slower rail system that travels regionally and tickets are less expensive than the famous bullet trains. Whichever you choose, purchasing a JR (Japan Rail) pass lowers your rail costs and you can ride an unlimited amount. You can select the time frame you want to use it seven, 14, or 21 days. Rail is popular but flights are too especially because budget airlines have entered the Japanese airspace and their ticket prices are comparable to the ticket prices of the bullet train.
