    Shinkansen tickets from Tokyo to Kyoto

    Very convenient. The online help was great and although I had to send a reminder for the tickets, they were promptly delivered with no fuss!

  • Jade Jade

    fantastic organisation for a wonderful day trip

    Our tickets were waiting at the hotel for us as agreed. The bullet train couldn't be easier to ride - amazingly helpful staff, clean, spacious, signage in english. We had a very tight turnaround on this trip but I am so glad I managed to see Kyoto - what an incredible city. THANK YOU!

  • Theresa Theresa

    Super easy purchase, convenient delivery, amazing day in Kyoto!

    I tried to figure out how to buy train tickets through JR, but found the system difficult to navigate. Voyagin made it quick and easy -- just what I needed!

    Fantastic - Makes Life So Much Easier

    This service was excellent start to finish. I had many many questions about travelling in Japan and the Voyagin team were all too happy to answer my requests and questions (including those that wouldn't lead to any sales or benefit to Voyagin).

    The ticket service was great - delivered to my hotel on time and easily, this took so much stress and hassle out of travelling in what is a very confusing and stressful place to travel for someone who speaks no Japanese. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.

    Kyoto to Tokyo

    I was so anxiety on last week as my boss wants me to book Shinkansen in Hong Kong for him. I looked over the web site and found that i can't book ticket on JR web site. Luckily i found "Voyagin". Their service is good. They have real time chat for all my questions. Plus it is great that they will deliver the ticket to hotel, it helps me boss a lot to wondering around in the station. Overall Voyagin service is great and very helpful. I will definitely recommend it to my friend and colleague.
