30 Things You Should Know and/or Will Love about Japan Series: # 1

These posts are written for Carrie, Pete, and Elvia for their imminent trip to Japan, but of course, anyone traveling to Japan or dreaming of traveling to Japan can enjoy.

#1 - Safe, Efficient, Clean Transportation

When you arrive, you will land, breeze through immigration, customs and baggage within 10-15 minutes.

Buses and trains are PUNCTUAL.  They leave when they say they leave and arrive in the same manner.  Besides our bikes and our feet, we use public transportation to get everywhere.  It is clean and very quiet.

There are many rules to traveling on a train - being respectful being the over arching rule.

You should take up only one, bags should be in your lap or at your feet.
You should be quiet.
You should not eat or drink.
You should not talk on your cellphone.

So many rules... but the train is peaceful and one can relax and "people watch"
