I received a lot of great comments from readers on the jr-odekake.net post.
While I was in Japan studying abroad, I used a very similar website to plan out trips– http://www.hyperdia.com/cgi-english/hyperWeb.cgi
I’ll have to try out this one too, though!
Hey there, Thomas. I also use Hyperdia for my train scheduling stuff. It works wonders – and has an English page, which Jethro pointed out. (Though it requires further clarification for some stops since their are homophone names involved and in English you don’t input kanji. I obviously prefer the Japanese end of the site to circumvent that problem.)
There’s also this one too: http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/norikae/e-norikeyin.html
It looks like the jr-odekake site allows you to book online as well. JR had the most brain-damaged online booking system imaginable for a while, which they thankfully decomissioned. Has anyone used this new system yet?
Thanks for the tips guys!Like this post? Give me the Thumbs Up!
