Japan has one of the world's most highly developed transportation systems.
The rail service alone covers almost all possible destinations. In addition, there is the national highway system, and a well developed domestic air service.
Buses and taxis provide connections around the clock in the cities, while ferry boats link Tokyo, Osaka and Kobe with the main ports on Hokkaido and Kyushu.
In addition, Japan offers comprehensive international air service through its four airlines, Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways and Japan Asia Airways, as well as a host of foreign-based carriers which fly to all corners of the globe.
