Questions about train travel in Japan

Jump to last reply

I am considering a 2-3 week trip to Japan covering the major tourist stops a first time visitor would do (Tokyo, Kyoto, etc). The use of the trains seems very daunting to me, especially figuring out the schedules and what to do with the luggage,, as I've read there are no porters in train stations. We do not speak Japanes and have never been to Japan before.. Any advice as to whether to DIY or book a tour that covers the places I want to see and let them take care of the luggage logistics? I've read many Japan TRs, but most of them have not been from first time travellers, although I know that every one of the posters was a first time traveller at some point.
