App Reviews

  • This app is a must

    By Schmackei
    If you plan to travel to Japan, get this app, it is free and it takes the guess work out of the train and bus network. It only took an hour to work out the trains but still used the app for every trip we made. Do yourself a favour and also get yourself a Suica prepaid travel card when you get to Japan, no need to buy tickets for daily sightseeing then.

    Very easy to navigate the rail system using this app
  • A MUST for travelling through Japan!

    By melgooba
    I cannot recommend this app highly enough! We used Japan Travel everyday for 3weeks from Tokyo to Hiroshima and back. It was infallible for everything from subway, trams and for us, as Australian travellers, the JR pass! It never let us down and saved us quite a few times!! Highly accurate. The only thing to be aware of, is that the app defaults to stations nearby, so when you are organising in advance (and not necessarily geographically close to the station), you really need to know the name of the station you want to look up. I would give Japan Travel 10 STARS!!!!
  • Detailed but frustrating bug

    By trankillity
    Very detailed app with all the information you could want as a tourist down to which platform and car you want to get on. Unfortunately it has a fatal bug for me. It CONSTANTLY keeps popping up the iPhone compass calibration wheel whenever in the search screen. Every 2 seconds or so it pops up and makes using the app almost impossible.
  • Otherwise perfect

    By Milde
    I love this app as it takes a lot of information and puts it in one place. I dropped a star because as a user with a paid plan I found the app unusable without a data connection. Could not review past searches as the app just got stuck is a spinning wheel.
  • Better Apps Compared to the Rest

    By SikKent
    Japan's rail system can be confusing for a foreigner. This was by the better app we used to figure out where we were going. Extremely helpful when navigating around Tokyo with platform number details.
  • Please fix

    By pro zzzzzz
    Great app, but route favorites/history keep dissapearing :( this especially happens when there is an app update
  • Best app ever

    By YN Vivien
    It not only tells you how to connect between places, it tells you which station platform to get on and which part of the car to get off, this is sooo helpful travel in confusing Tokyo train system.
  • Not good.

    By BogW
    Best there is, a little slow Need to edit favorited stations. Need for Ipad.
  • Good and bad

    By Go Blue Boys
    Good points - generally very handy for trains, and recommend it for any visitor to Japan or expat living in Japan. Bad points - seems mainly geared to Japan visitors rather than expat residents of Japan who want a good English app. - extra services, I think, are costly, but again this is because the app is aimed at short term visitors, so this may be worth it for them. - if the app provided a yearly cost, for long term use of premium services, that was reasonable, I would consider it. - annoying request for personal details each time the app is first opened, you can skip it though. - seems to use a lot of battery life with background usage, so I strongly suggest turning off the location services unless you really need it.
