The cost of a trip to Japan will be higher if you decide to stay in a ryokan, a hotel in the traditional Japanese style. In ryokans the floor is paved with tatami, instead of beds – futons, and guests are given national slippers and bathrobes. Sometimes there is an onsen, a hot spring. The cheapest ones in Tokyo cost $70-80 for two, usually with a shared bathroom. From $100 are ryokans with private baths. $150-$300 are spacious ryokans with onsen in other Japanese cities.

Tip: In large cities you don’t have to live in the center. The main thing – close to the subway.

The cost of transportation in Japan

Subways and trains. It’s hard without the train in Japan. The main railway company is Japan Railways (JR). Especially for tourists it has created a JR Pass. It is valid only for visitors and is issued before your trip to Japan on the JR Pass website. The document will come by e-mail. Then find the company’s counter at the subway station in Japan and exchange it for the pass.

JR Pass is valid for all company transportation: shinkansen, some subway lines and many commuter trains. This is a personal document, it can not be transferred to others. Most importantly, it can not be lost, because the card will not be re-issued. It costs $264 for 7 days, $422 for 14 days, and $542 for 21 days.

The cost of travel in the Japanese subway depends on the zones into which the subway lines in major cities of the country are divided. Trains run every 5 minutes, from 5:00 to 23:30, sometimes until midnight. The color of the coach corresponds to the line it follows. The fare depends on the distance and the city. For example, in Tokyo it ranges from 120-320¥ per trip. A 1-day pass costs 1000¥.

Buses are inconvenient for the tourist because the route numbers and names are almost always written in hieroglyphics. On average, buses run from 7:00 to 21:00, but in some areas the departure is earlier (from 5:30), and ends later (until 23:30). The cost per trip by bus and streetcar is 220-420 ¥.
