Hey gu ys, so today I want to share with you guys one of my most favourite ways of travelling around Japan and if it’s not the cheapest, it definitely is one of the cheapest ways to get around Japan and the ticket is called the seishun 18 kippu in Japanese and in English it goes along the lines of youthful 18 ticket I’m not quite sure why they added the “youthful” and the “18” in there because no matter how old you are, anyone can buy the ticket If you get this ticket, it gives you unlimited rides on the local and rapid trains on the JR line For the ticket it’s around 11,850 yen so it comes to around 2,370 yen a day so that’s really cheap, imagine going from Tokyo to Osaka or like Tokyo to Hokkaido, that’s amazing! and the ticket looks like this so you can get unlimited rides on the local and rapid trains for 5 days or 5 times however, it doesn’t have to be consecutive days and also you can share this with your friends and family and use the ticket just remember you have to use it up before it expires the ticket is seasonal so it only goes on sale 3 times a year So the youthful 18 ticket is very similar to the JR pass however only foreigners with the tourist visa on their passports can purchase the JR pass so I thought I would share this video with those of you who aren’t on your tourist visa in Japan I think this ticket is great for budget travellers and it’s great if you want to see more of the local Japan or if you just want to have a spontaneous trip, just jump on a train and see where it takes you I actually personally used this ticket a few times before once I went from Tokyo all the way to Hiroshima It took me around 16 hours so that’s a lot of time compared to the JR pass where you would just use the bullet train However, time equals money right? So you sacrifice time on this ticket However, it’s only 2,000 yen It only cost me 2,000 yen to get from Tokyo all the way to Hiroshima so that was really cool because I could stop along many train stations like local train stations that you would never stop at and I also went there by myself so it was a great way to see the local areas of Japan and just get on and off a lot of the trains The local trains do take a lot more time to get to the destination however, you can see views that no other transportation method can offer you can buy the tickets at any JR ticket offices or travel service centres they are mostly located nearby the train ticket gates so it’s very easy to find You can’t put the ticket through the automatic gates so Instead, you have to pass through the manned gates and show the ticket to the station staff you can also buy it on the ticket machines however they don’t have an English one yet but if you follow what I pressed on the Japanese one, it should be quite straight forward Press for how many tickets you would like, one is for 5 days and then just confirm and pay the money here are some of my very old photos when I used this ticket to travel around Japan visiting some friends and family So I hope you guys found this video helpful
So we are waiting in Shinagawa. Our train’s about to get here. We’re headed to Osaka for three days! I’m a little tired as its 5 in the morning. Getting the earliest Shinkansen we can get. Check it out here’s our train! YAY…… Yay! Are you excited? Still a little tired. Woooooaaaa Shinkansen Time! Look at that train. You ready to get on one of the fastest train systems in Japan. Ready. Ready. I’m ready! I’m ready! Alright, so we are on the Shinkansen. How do you like it so far? …… So we are on the Tokkaido Shinkansen on the fastest one called the Nozomi And it usually reaches speeds up to 320km/hr which is about… What was it? 198mph? for people in America. We’re actually gonna get to see Mt. Fuji in about 20 minutes. So that’ll be really cool. Pretty awesome view from what I’ve heard. I’ve actually never seen it. I’ve always been on the wrong side.(of the train) If you wanna see Mt. Fuji, what you wanna do is you wanna be on the…. E seats. The window seats The Nozomi is one of the faster trains… and there’s not much of a price difference between Nozomi and uhhh what was it, Hikari. But, if you have the JR Pass You can’t use it for the Nozomi So that’s the only down side. They both cost about the same and the times aren’t much different. Its about a 30 or 45 minute difference. Here’s a quick view of how fast the train is going. Look at that. Darkness… Tunnel If you have motion sickness, I would not recommend staring out the window. Its a little rough. Pretty excited to go to Osaka. Oh come on, come on, come on. There it is! Mt. Fuji! I’m surprised there’s not more ice on the top. I guess its because its still warm. Wow! That’s awesome. That’s actually a pretty good view. Its not bad. Best view I’ve gotten of it. Wow.. Imagine climbing that bad boy. Sounds easy. Its not! Wow. Check that out. There it is! Mt Fuji, this actually a pretty good shot. Awesome! Cool. My brother is really bad at showing his excitement.
Let’s get on the “Yui-Rail” Monorail in Okinawa! Naha Airport The westernmost Japanese station
Yui-Rail, Naha Airport Station Disadvantaged groups Please wait a minute here. If you show your Japanese disability certificate to the station staff, you can purchase the ticket at half the price. We would like go to Asahibashi Station,
May I use the ramp? Accessible restroom When the station staff presses a remote control button, a wheelchair ramp goes up and down. For example, during maintenance,
we use the regular/removable ramp, However, this ramp is stable, so users like it more. Now it’s only in Okinawa, but I hope every Japanese station will be equipped with this type of ramp.
There is an elevator the other side, but … Wheelchair Walker We took the LRT from Masjid Jamek station A long ramp took us to the ticket gate Take a little sip We are taking a break Ticket-vending machine ① Select English ② Select the line ③ Select the destination station ④ Select the number of tickets My son bought the tickets by himself ⑤ Pay the price ⑥ Take the tokens Make sure you don’t forget the change The gate opens when you touch the sensor with the token It is narrow We took an elevator to get to the platform This step is bigger than the one on MRT There is a wheelchair space It says you should give up these seats to those who need them We should get off now I am a bit scared There is an escalator, but how about an elevator? There isn’t one! There is an elevator the other side, but … It’s difficult to find the elevator There aren’t many signs here in Malaysia It looks like there is nothing here But just at the end, there is an elevator It’s difficult for tourists to find it I was panicking already We were panicking I recommend you ask the station staff if the elevator at your destination works or not The elevator on the other side of this station under maintenance We posted everything on WheeLog!

Peach! That’s a very nice shape! Wheelchair Walker Okayama Station Oh, This street is so bumpy. That is a tram. How about this tram? so retro. Cool! It’s impossible to get on because there is a tall step. It looks impossible for wheelchair users. Which one can we take? It looks like there are lots of lines. Barrier free vehicle “MOMO” They have a wheelchair sign. A “MOMO” arrives every 40 minutes. It’s called “MOMO”, like the device made by Techno Tools. “MOMO” as in “peach”? Maybe because “Momotaro” (a story) comes from Okayama? Maybe because they produce a lot of peaches in Okayama? Peach! That’s a very nice shape! We can see where the “MOMO” is right now. The price is 100 or 140 yen. It’s so cheap. I can look out, the glass goes all the way to the floor. It’s nice that the ticket machine is not high up. It’s so practical for both healthy and disabled people. Not all stations are barrier-free, so please check with the conductor before going on the streetcar. Hooray! We will update the video about the sightseeing bus next Saturday! Please like the video and subscribe to the Wheelchair Walker channel!
