HYPERDIA is a train timetable application that allows you to search using natural language spoken queries in either English or Japanese. For example, try a query like "Narita Airport to Shibuya station, last train." The search parameters will be set automatically, providing quick access to the train timetable information you are looking for. This can be particularly handy if you are a foreigner traveling in Japan for the first time, or simply prefer to see timetable information in English.

We supported for 64bit architecture.
===Using Voice Search===
The English language voice search system supports "Departure station", "Arrival station", "last train", and "first train" input parameters. You may also specify time information.
The voice search functionality helps to eliminate otherwise difficult and time-consuming text input, particularly when entering the names of Japanese train stations. Voice search is also useful when you are in a hurry, or when it's awkward to input text using the built-in keypad.
Stations with similar pronunciations will appear as alternative candidates, making it easy to select your desired station.
The application also supports telephone-style usage. You can simply lift the phone to your ear and speak your query as if you were having a normal telephone conversation.
Of course, it is also possible to specify your search parameters using the built-in keypad without using the voice functionality.
Search for all JR lines, private lines, subways, streetcars and airports is supported.
Information including the shortest route, fares, commuter fares, and links to time information and maps is shown.
It is possible to filter results based on plane routes, shinkansen, and rapid lines, as well as JR versus private railways.
Both English and Japanese versions of the system are available. This allows the user to search the same set of nationwide Japanese stations in either English or Japanese using text or voice input. Note that the English-language voice system is tailored to American English accents.
===30 days Free Trial===
The trial version of the application can be used for free for 30 days, starting from the first usage following installation.

Ratings and Reviews
Hyperdia is an awesome app that makes it super easy to plan train travel in Japan. I choose the route and then show the ticketing staff and they can book seats (particularly for longer trips) Makes life and train travel stress free. Love it.
A must for all JR Rail Pass users
This is by far the easiest and most convenient app to plan JR Rail Pass travel across Japan. You have to pay for a subscription service, but the convenience of knowing timetables, and which routes are covered by the JR Rail Pass outweigh the small cost of the subscription.
A Must Have App for Train Travels to Japan
Extremely handy and easy to use...traveling to Japan?
got to get this one... it’s a worthwhile application, even has a free trial limited period that allowed us to use it without the need to pay for the App outright.
Japanese people are amazing.
