About our service
Japan Rail Planner provides a trip planning application, whereby a user can create and customise their own route through Japan. Links are provided to third parties to enable the user to book accommodation and travel. The service aims to make the organisation of an Japan rail trip easier.
How are we paid?
You will not be charged for using our website. Instead, we have affiliate partnerships with various travel providers. When you follow a link out of our website to a third party (e.g. hostelworld.com) and book accommodation or travel with that third party we receive commission.

ii. The Basic Japan Rail Planner Service
Our service is intended for personal use by people eligible to purchase a Japan Rail Pass. Japan Rail Planner is an information source and planning application for Japanese train travel where you can find travel options to compile your travel itinerary and manage your route. We offer booking via third parties and provide links through to the necessary booking page to correspond with your trip parameters, where you will be bound by the third party’s Terms and Conditions.
We always try and ensure the information presented on our website is fully accurate. For information relating to journeys we rely on the information given to us by travel organisers and our travel partners.

We cannot be held accountable for any information from third parties nor liable for any booking made through the third party.
