The Japan Railways Group, more commonly known as JR Group (JRグループ Jeiāru Gurūpu), consists of seven for-profit companies as its shown in JR map Tokyo, JR tokyo companies took over most of the assets and operations of the government-owned Japanese National Railways on April 1, 1987. Most of the liability of the JNR was assumed by the JNR Settlement Corporation.
The JR Tokyo lies at the heart of Japan railway network as its mentioned in JR map Tokyo, operating a large proportion of intercity rail service (including the Shinkansen high-speed rail lines) and commuter rail service. A strong distinction is still made between JR and other private railway companies; for instance, the two are generally denoted differently on JR Tokyo maps.
The JR Tokyo group consists of seven operating companies and two other companies that do not provide rail service as you can see in JR map Tokyo. The operating companies in JR Tokyo are organized into six passenger operators and a nationwide freight operator. Unlike some other groups of companies, the JR Group Tokyo is made up of independent companies, and it does not have group headquarters or a holding company to set the overall business policy.
To cover various non-railway business areas, each regional operator in the JR Group of Tokyo has its own group of subsidiary companies with names like "JR East Group" and "JR Shikoku Group" as its shown in JR map Tokyo. JR Tokyo maintains a nation-wide railway network as well as common ticketing rules that it inherited from JNR. Passengers may travel across several JR companies without changing trains and without purchasing separate tickets. However, trains running across the boundaries of JR companies have been reduced.
