Best thing we purchased

published

Pre-purchasing a JR Pass was the best thing we had done prior to travelling to Japan. It arrived in less than 2 weeks. We used the JR pass so many times and found it was easy to book seats. The seats were spacious and comfortable to travel in. If you wanting to save money on transport in Japan and are planning to travel around to explore different cities than purchase a JR PASS!!!

A blessing.

published

The pass made our trips easy and saved a lot of money. Apart from the odd queue to book seats, being able to pass through the gates with a wave of the pass saved so much hassle and time and made the decision to take short side day trips easy. Highly recommended.

A necessity if travelling in Japan

published

Great for anyone wanting to travel Japan on the railway. Easy to use and a money saver.
Worth paying the extra for Green pass.
However, would be great if you could choose something in between the 7 and 14 day pass. Stayed 10 days, which wasn't worth paying for the 14 day pass, but needed a one way back to Tokyo which was costly on its own.
Staff was always very helpful.

Great way to see the real Japan

published

This is the second time we have used Japan Rail Pass and would not go any other way. We planed our 23 day trip using the Hyperdia website to plan timetables and everything went to plan we also booked our reserved seating for all our trains when we arrived so it was so easy we just went to the station and got on. Another great advantage we could print out the individual trips with the stations so we knew when to get off..

Easy access to Japan Rail networks

published

With our JR rail pass, we caught many trains, including six trips on the Shinkansen. It was great value for money; you only had to show it to the inspector on entry and exit to a JR line.

Easy to use

published

Very helpful staff. Better coverage of public transport than we thought. We bought the green pass and while the seats are very comfortable, they have high backs so difficult to get a good view out of the window. Also dont sit in the front row as you cant see anything!

Went mad all over Tokyo. And Kyoto too.

published

Anywhere was not a question in Tokyo. Just jump on and off trains anywhere. Even the monorail to The airport. Bullet train to Kyoto for a few days then return , no worries. Worth its weight.

JR Pass - a must have

published

We bought a 14 day JR Pass and travelled extensively throughout Honshu and Kyushu. It cost us about AUD 800. If we had paid for individual tickets the cost would have been well over AUD 1000. The JR Pass is a great concept and a must have for tourists in Japan.

Best value for money

published

If you will be moving around Japan a bit, this is the best value you will find. It seems like a large outlay to begin with, but boy does it pay for itself 10 times over!!

Japan Rail Pass gives excellent access

published

We found the JR pass gave us excellent access to travel in Japan. The staff were very helpful at all stations. The bullett trains were very convenient and the underground system comprehensive.

Unclear what trains can't take with pass. No extension despite one day of 7 day pass lost due to Typhoon Hagibis.

published

Had to get off empty train pointlessly despite it going where we wanted to arrive in 20 mins. Had to pay to get back to Tokyo the day after Typhoon Hagibis even though all trains had been cancelled the day before. Small print issues very poor.

Great customer service

published

The rail pass itself is essential for travelling around Japan, saves a fortune if your getting about a lot and makes travel super easy. But I was most impressed with the customer service, Japan Rail Pass Now went above and beyond to get me the pass in a timely manner and problem solved via email almost in realtime.

Excellent system

published

Simple and easy to purchase, access and use. Staff were always accommodating and helpful. Trains were clean and comfortable and a wonderful way to travel through Japan. We reserved all of our seats at the beginning of our holiday which made it extremely easy to organise our holiday. Would definitely do the same again.

Travelling Japan, make sure to pack a JR Pass

published

The JR Pass makes it so easy to travel on this wonderful network of trains. It also makes it easier to get in and out of railway stations and when they are the size of Tokyo you need to go through several ticket booths to navigate around the station and without the JR Pass simplifying this you could spend hours finding your way around. Dont be put off by the cost it will save you heaps in comparison to buying individual tickets.
