Travelling to Japan by water is definitely an option as there are international ferry services from countries such as Korea, China, Taiwan and Russia. Some major ferry routes that take you to Japan by water are Busan-Osaka, Shanghai-Osaka/Kobe, Keelung-Ishigaki/Naha and Russia to Japan via Sakhalin. However, if you travel to Japan by water, it is not very convenient as it takes a long time and the tickets are also rather expensive, with schedules being infrequent and often unreliable. Travelling within Japan is convenient if you use the public transport system. People often prefer to use trains and metros as they are easy to use and fast. Most people also like to use the shinkansen (bullet train), the high speed trains that allow you to travel from one city to another in Japan, very fast. In fact, Japan’s bullet trains are renowned the world over.
