 The Japan Rail Pass has joined Rail Europes fast-growing network of worldwide rail journeys.

Japans entire range of rail passes, starting from 19 for unlimited travel for a day, can now be booked through the international marketing network.

Options extend from various consecutive day choices to 7, 14 or 21 days and include trips aboard most of the famous Shinkansen bullet trains.

Rail Europe began as a partnership of Europes national railways as train travel becomes increasingly popular worldwide, eliminating airport inconveniences and providing direct destination transportation from remote rural locations to the centre of cities.

The network has since become a leader in distributing rail products worldwide in more than 45 countries across Asia, Australia and New Zealand, North and South America and Africa/Middle East.

It simplifies the booking process, enabling booking through travel agents as well as localised websites, in local languages and currency.

Non-European partners include Via Rail and Rocky Mountaineer in Canada, Americas national rail operator Amtrak, the Ghan and Indian Pacific in Australia, Korean railways Korail and now Japan Rails state-of-the-art railway system.

Rail Europe CEO Pierre Stephane Austi said, Japan is an exciting new addition to our portfolio of international train travel options. Rail Europe is fast becoming the gateway to booking value-added train journeys not only in Europe but worldwide.

Underlining the growing popularity of train travel, Rail Europe recorded three consecutive quarters of 36% growth in 2010.
