Freedom and convenience to cost effectively explore
Love the ease with which JR pass can be purchased and used. My family have visited Japan twice and this pass has allowed us to efficiently see many cities and towns.
The most cost effective way to get around. Really efficient as well in terms of postage and activation. Very easy to activate upon arriving in Narita and we received the pass confirmation well in advance of our trip.
Easy to order and promptly sent with communication given as to when to expect it. arrived in timely fashion with instructions on how to use it once in Japan. It was too easy. Refund requested and answered straight away. Thank you.
Japan rail pass great value
The JR Pass made Japans rail network even easier to use.
Easy to exchange.
Exchange offices very helpful
Rail travel in Japan is highly efficient and clean, highly recommended.
Easy to reserve shinkansen tickets.
Would definitely recommend if using multiple trains across Japan, particularly the bullet trains
It’s a little bit expensive but worth it if you’re travelling across multiple trains and days. The trains in Japan are very efficient and comfortable. Super fast delivery once the pass was ordered
Perfect solution for visiting Japan
Provides flexibility and freedom to travel in Japan. As a tourist it was wonderful to have the ability to reserve a seat on the Shinkansen as well as take some local lines such as Yamanote loop in Tokyo.
Great service and fast delivery. Website easy to order Japan Rail Pass from. Plenty of information about the Japan Rail Pass was included on the website. Highly recommend this company.
Fast ,reliable and so easy to get around operating like precision clockwork, all in all great service and lovely people. We really enjoyed our experience spent here in japan thanks!! Cheers from Australia.
Having the pass made travelling easy and comfortable. The staff were always helpful and making the booking ahead of time help us plan our holiday. We would do it again.
Good if you’re moving around
Pass was great but would be good to be able to extend 1 or 2 days to include you entire stay. Easy to use in all stations and JR staff were really helpful
Very valuable pass to travel across Japan
The pass is excellent for foreign travelers but I thought quite expensive. Ofcourse what happens with the pass, you visit places and spend two or three days in each place. So the pass is not used when your staying in each place. Hence I think in that aspect the price needs to be more accommodating and possibly the price for 1 week should be the price for 2 weeks.
Also, more emphasis should be made as to where you cannot use the pass. Some trains like the Nizhoumi express is not allowed. We were not made aware until the inspector told us though it is mentioned inside. I think there should be more emphasis on where it cannot be used as well.
Otherwise I think it is a fantastic pass to get across Japan!
JR pass makes travel inJapanso easy.
JR pass was easy to use and made intercity travel very easy. We were also able to use it on JR buses and trains intracity. In out two weeks in Japan, it provided great value for money. JR staff were very helpful.
Annoying having to stand in long, slow moving lines after a long flight, waiting to exchange the vouchers. A pity the voucher isn't activated some other way - electronically, when first entering a station.
Very easy and useful
It was a super easy purchase process and received the rail pass vouchers in the mail within a few days. The digital travel guide made for good reading and was really useful!
Excellent value, however could be improved.
Very good service and great value. However, I would like to have the option to purchase Nozomi Shinkansen access. However, definitely 4 Stars and incredible delivery and easy instructions on how to exchange when arriving in Happen.
