Japan may be a small country land wise, but it is large in trains. There is still a heavy emphasis on passenger rail transport. The largest rail system are the JR Lines. JR is actually several different private companies. At one time these companies formed JNR, the national railroad. There are also numerous private rail lines. Many are a cross between mainline and interurban trains. Of course everybody knows Japan for the famous Bullet trains, or Shinkansen.

For purposes of clarity, JR Tokyo Commuter services photos are located in the Tokyo Transit Photos and the same with Osaka Commuter services. JR long distance and special trains remain in this section. Included are photos of the experimental Maglev line undergoing evaluation in Yamanashi Prefecture. Please choose your desire:

If you like Japanese railroading consider joining the Japanese Railway Society.
