JR pass, FOR CHEAPER TRAIN TRAVEL

The JR Pass is the ideal travel solution and the best way to discover Japan by train.
 Economical and simple to use, the JR Pass gives you access to the JR network nationwide and is a lot cheaper than buying individual train tickets.



Get the maximum out of your JR Pass: for the price of a return ticket Tokyo-Kyoto, visit the rest of Japan free for 7 days!



what are the advantages of a green pass?

The 'Green Pass' entitles you to travel in the 'Green Car', the equivalent of our 1st class, on all valid Shinkansen (so except Nozomi and Mizuho) and certain fast lines.

The Green Japan Rail Pass is not often used by foreign travellers but, considering the comfort it offers, the space, the hot towel (oshibori) and even free drinks you receive on some routes, it is good value for money.

Buying the Green Japan Rail Pass is a good idea if you are planning on travelling during busy times (May, August and September) because, in addition to the fact that there is more space allocated to each traveller, the Green cars are generally less busy giving you more of a chance of reserving a seat.

Who is eligible for the Japan Rail Pass?

To use the Japan Rail Pass it is necessary to:
  • be a non-Japanese national
  • enter Japan with the status ‘Temporary Visitor ‘ which is an authorisation for people visiting Japan for tourism and staying for less than 90 days
  • be visiting for a touristic stay. 
Therefore, the following people are not eligible to use the Japan Rail Pass:
Please note that some visas obtained for special activities other than tourism, even of short duration, do not meet eligibility criteria.

Very happy. Purchased a JR East pass online last minute (<48 hours before I travelled) - it was the cheapest price available, and I received the electronic voucher very soon. This was easily exchanged for the pass (without having to print it) at the JR office. The PDF of info was useful too.

We have been to Japan 4 times and always use *** Experience to purchase our Japan Rail Pass and pocket WiFi. I have always had the best experience with them and it is an absolute pleasure. I have had no problems with them and will use them again for our next trip when we can travel again.
