Japan Rail Pass

  • 7, 14 or 21 days

The Japan Rail Pass is the easiest and cheapest way to discover Japan. For a duration of 7, 14 or 21 days, you'll benefit from unlimited use of JR trains to travel between the country's main tourist attractions. You'll even have access to the impressive Shinkansen bullet trains.

Japan Rail Pass

The Japan Rail Pass gives access to all JR national trains, including bullet trains and the Narita Express. You'll also be able to get on most JR local buses to explore the small towns and villages throughout the country; travel via the JR Miyajima ferry, and use the Tokyo monorail which connects Haneda airport with Hamamatsucho station.

One of the most significant benefits of using the JR Pass is being able to travel on Shinkansen bullet trains. Considered the fastest commercial trains in the world, this incredible transport network provides speedy connections between the majority of Japan's most important cities.

The JR Pass is also a fantastic way to save money while you explore Japan, considering the price of a standard 7 day ticket is less than the price of a return ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto.

How does it work?

The physical Japan Rail Pass is not sold in Japan. After making your purchase online and indicating a delivery address, you'll receive an official exchange order voucher to your home address or to your hotel in Japan. The cost of priority delivery is included in the price.

When you arrive in Japan, you will need to go to any of the Japan Rail exchange offices, located at the airport and in the main train stations, to exchange your voucher for the official ticket. There, you will choose the activation date of your JR Pass, which must be within 30 days of the exchange date.

From the date of activation, the ticket will be valid for 7, 14 or 21 consecutive days, according to the selected option.

Who can use the pass?

The JR Pass can be used by any foreign tourist travelling to Japan as a temporary visitor (less than 90 days).

Important information

  • You must indicate the full names and passport numbers of every person for whom you are buying a ticket when making the reservation.
  • To validate your voucher and receive the official ticket, you must present your passport with your tourist visa and entry stamp to Japan.
  • After receiving the Exchange Order voucher, you must exchange it at the Japan Rail Pass offices within the following 3 months.
  • Once activated, the ticket validity dates cannot be altered.
