Japan Rail Pass

published

Easy to use on all JR lines throughout Tokyo, very convenient. Well worth it, specially when using the Shinkansen to visit other major cities like Osaka, Kyoto or Hiroshima. Easy to book seats at JR service centres.

This is a must!!

published

The JR pass proved essential for our recent Japan adventure. It turned out to be brilliant value for money as we used it far more extensively than we expected. It was super easy and the JR rail system is fast and efficient. Don’t even consider exploring Japan without a JR pass. It’s a must.

We travelled to Madarao, Hiroshima, Kyoto and Tokyo. You don’t have to worry about purchasing tickets every stop, so convenient to get around. Well worth it if you compare all individual fare costs.

The Japan rail pass is an excellent way to navigate around Japan and covers a large area of the country. It also covered many city trains, not just country trains. The trains are clean, warm and comfortable.

JR Pass got us between Nagoya, Kyoto, Nara, Miyajima Island, Hiroshima, Sendai and Tokyo. Exchange process of voucher at JR Nagoya Station office was seamless, and bookings were easy, even over the busy New Year period.

Very fast delivery and easy to exchange the voucher in Japan for the Rail Pass

published

Order arrived within 2 business days. It contained clear instructions on how to exchange the voucher for the Rail Pass once in Japan. It was a very easy process at the airport upon arrival in Japan. They also sent a link to download a free information booklet to assist with using the JR pass and which services it can't be used on.

This is great. Couldn't of got round Japan without it.

published

This pass was very convenient and useful. It made travelling very easy around all of Japan's major cities and smaller surrounding areas. It was quite expensive but without it my trip would of been unaffordable.

Easy to Purchase, Easy to Use

published

We ordered our pass in Australia and it arrived within a few days. It was easy to use at all the stations however getting the vouchers changed to actual passes was a hassle. The line at the airport was really long and after a 10 hour flight it was the last thing we wanted to line up for. If you get the green pass you also can't reserve any bullet train seats until you have your pass. Great pass overall but could do with some work in terms of collection and booking.

Very convenient

It's easy to get and it really helps to move around Japan.
Totally worth it if you plan to travel a lot from town to town, if you'll only stay in a couple of cities, you're better off with the Suica or Pasmo cards.

Quick delivery, easy to exchange in Japan

published

Vouchers arrived quickly and had no issue exchanging them in Japan at the Tokyo Narita JR ticket office. JR service was great and we got great value out of our tickets. Navitime app was very useful as you can put in that you have a JR pass and it will tell you if it’s covered by the pass or not (also a good way to work out if the JR pass will save you money based on where you plan to go). When you’re in the subway, look for the JR lines :)

Good experience

On time and clean and lots of services. The only hint I would give travellers is to show your jr pass on all routes even with some local trains as we paid for some trips and they were covered with the pass

This is a must have for anyone travelling to Japan for an extended period.

published

If you’re moving around Japan regularly then this is a no brainer. However you must use the Shinkansen at least 3-4 times to get the value out of it fully.

Excellent but ...

.. if you a have green pass make sure to reserve your seats well in advance. Don't get caught out standing in non reserved for 4 hours. :( . I believe there should be an expectation to be able to travel on the green car if you've paid the extra.

The receipt for my JR pass took about 3 or 4 days to arrive. You need the receipt to pick up the pass so I think you are cutting it fine.
