JR-West business was merged as a trade organization (Kabushiki Kaisha) early in 1987 as
a measure of the disintegration of the national retained Japanese State Railways (JNR).
Primarily, it was a wholly-owned subordinate of the JNR Disbursement Firm, and a personal
business generated holding the properties of the earlier JNR, whereas they were shuffled
amongst the current JR businesses in which it involved with monopolistic market features.
Question 1

Generally, the train journey among Tokyo and Osaka is sound and best linked, and there
are several means of making the trip. Therefore, the quickest method of traveling from Osaka to
Kyoto considered by using rail. Consequently, through making use of JR pass, ones might
get a Shinkansen bullet railway-train which recognized as the fastest and secure both with
passengers and goods. Hence, since it only takes about at least fourteen minutes from Tokyo to
Osaka, thereby ensuring the perishable products are well secured. Also, a bullet train considered
the cheapest and economical means of transport. Therefore, bullet trains charging at least $12 per
passenger definitely will make the economy to remain to be stables and, as such, will result in
the elimination of inflations, thus strengthening full employment among the citizen. Therefore,

as moderate pricing being put into place. Thus japan government being the leading nations in
terms of industrialization will always put in places ethical rules regulating monopoly company
operations to avoid overpricing (Cho, Chien, Nguyen, & Truong, 2018)

Hence, considered as being very easy to purchase shinkansen vouchers in individuals at
train locations within Japan.
Moreover, any JR receipt workplace and voucher window would trade shinkansen
receipts. Therefore, in more prominent train locations like Tokyo and Kyoto, both have steadfast
shinkansen voucher workplaces. Note: ones need recompense in yen notes. However, recognized
as being handy having a scarce Y10, 000 cash, as well, around Y1, 000 payment for such. Thus,
one might put entire bills collectively. Therefore, if one appear to be planning in making
numerous shinkansen trips during the period in Japan, then ones actually must reflect and aim at
purchasing a Japan Rail Pass, as it could soundly/excellent work out as the economical choice.

economies of scale as a result of price elasticity (Jiang, Chen, Zhang, & Zhang, 2015).
