I am debating taking a job in Japan. I have a ~11kg dog, and want to get a sense of how hard it would be to travel with her.
For example, would she be allowed on the Narita Express to Tokyo? Or on any of the local trains around the Tokyo area? If I wanted to travel on the weekend to more rural areas, on the Shinkansen, would she be allowed?
If dogs are generally not allowed on trains, is there any kind of either mass transit or individual transit which accepts transporting dogs? I don't plan to own a car, so it's important for me that there be some way to get around with her if I need to.
To summarize, are dogs allowed on any sort of mass transit in/around Tokyo? And if not, what are the possible ways to transport me and my dog without owning my own vehicle?
