I am trying to plan a last minute trip to Japan. We will be leaving in about a month and a half and i am franticly trying to get as much information on traveling as cheaply as possible while still adventuring as much as possible.
Is there a super cheap way to travel from city to city?
and, do you know of any cheap places to stay overnight?
I'm headed to Japan in about a month and I'm planning on getting the JR Rail pass. If you're not a Japanese citizen/perm. resident, you can buy a 7 or 14-day pass good on all trains in Japan for between $200-400. It's probably the best deal to get around Japan - and you can use the pass on the high-speed Shinkansen trains that run throughout the country.

Hope this helps!
Does anyone by any chance know anything about night trains?
