Japan by rail is a great way to travel – convenient and comfortable. The popular Japan Rail Pass gives you unlimited access on the extensive networks of the Japan Railway Group (JR Group) throughout Japan. The Japan Rail Pass is sold for 7, 14 and 21 days and access includes selected bullet trains, express & local trains, bus and ferry.
To obtain the pass, purchase an exchange order before entering Japan. The purchase of the pass has restrictions and is limited to international travelers with temporary visitor status on their passport issued by countries outside of Japan. After arriving in Japan, present the exchange order at major JR stations to receive the pass. As a temporary service, currently the pass is also sold at some sales offices in Japan until March 31, 2018. This is a smart way to get the most out of your trip.
