Great efficient system

Our experience so far has been very positive. The JR staff are helpful in directing. The trains are punctual and clean. There are frequent Shinkansens between main cities . If you happen to have long trip prebook your return.

The great Japan Journey

Japan Rail Pass although a bit expensive was well worth the investment, we found it easy to use particularly when using the bullett trains

Convenience over cost

Staff at JR offices couldn’t be more helpful validating our passes and booking tickets. We also used the pass for local trips which avoided having to use the ticket machines

Vacation made easier with rail pass

A great service and our vacation was made all the easier by using the pass and booking all our tickets for our journeys with seat reservations in advance at Tokyo station. Please remember to be at station and at correct platform in time. The trains wait for no one.

Japan done our way and at half the cost of the Tour Companies

The rail pass proved to be excellent for our needs. We arrived in Osaka on the Friday but did not want to activate it until the Monday. We went to the JR office at Osaka Station and it was no problem. We also booked reserved seats to Hiroshima for the Monday and then on to Kyoto on the Thursday. There was no waiting in line. We only had to wait for a couple of minutes at any of the other JR offices. We booked reserved seats for all but one of the trips. Plenty of unreserved seats. The JR pass covered so many travel options including ferry travel to Deer Island, Hop On bus in Hiroshima and many other local trains. We travelled around Japan for 17 days with no train hassles at all. Just don't be late for the train as they are always on time.

How to save in travel cost when in Japan

This was one of the best things we did to get the JR Pass as it saved lots of travel cost within Japan.

Not much benefits to pay extra money for Green Pass

I had Green Pass, but it was no different from ordinary seats, except maybe chairs. Not much benefit for extra money!

Good value

An easy system to use, convenient enough to redeem and make bookings for individual city-to-city trips. Great value if you want to travel to multiple city's.

Excellent

Excellent service, very fast delivery, everything worked really well and very smoothly. Would have liked to be able to book trains on the internet, though.

efficiently delivered and easy to use

Our passes were delivered quickly by express mail and were easy to use once activated in Japan. We used them to travel on regional rail, including Shinkansen, and on the metro lines in Osaka and Tokyo.

Ease of travel

The JR pass made life so much easier for us to get around. We did a lot of travelling so it helped keep costs down too.

An excellent purchase easy to use in Japan travelling between major cities as well as local JR trains in Tokyo

Using the Japanese Rail Pass was very easy and of great value travelling on the Shinkansen between major cities in Japan.

Worry free experience with JR Pass

Wonderful to travel all around Japan without the worry to buy tickets or passes. We were family of 4 travelled from Tokyo to Hiro and in between. It was so economical and easy to travel with this pass. Highly recommend to anyone who will be travelling around Japan.

We did not try that. When we were at the counter to get our JR pass the very helpful staff booked our Narita express to Tokyo and another trip. So easy
