A few popular places do not have any JR lines

The Japan Railways and a Japan Rail Pass will take you all over Japan but you may also come accross "private lines" or railways that are not owned by the Japan Railways Company. Most large cities and their surrounding areas have very big private railway companies. These lines often intersect with the JR, but also provide service to areas to which the JR has not yet come.
