The transportation system is excellent in Japan. Although people may not always possess their own car, they are able to manage one-day trips to Hot Springs by using public transportation. Japanese Hot Springs make people feel refreshed. If you flew from Haneda Airport for an hour you would reach a snowy region or subtropical region. If you got on board a Shinkansen, you could get to Nara or Kyoto, where you would be able to travel back in time almost 1,000 years.
