it was great

It was easy to use and very convenient. Loved how we could book our seats on the fast train. Very worthwhile. We were able to travel from Osaka to Kyoto, Hiroshima and Tokyo using our pass.

Timely, reliable and fast.

published

Thank you - brilliant method of travelling. Clean at all times. It was always on time, reliable, fast and the food catering was wonderful. The staff at the stations and on the train were always very polite. Loved these trains so much that we took a special trip to visit the Shinkansen Museum which was absolutely amazing.
My only annoyance when travelling sometimes was when the local people booked a window seat and pulled the blind down for the entire journey, therefore as a foreign visitor you could not view the beautiful country side. Why book a window seat if you don't want to look out!?

Good value if using bullet train a few times

published

It was good value for us as we travelled the bullet train numerous times as well as other JR trains. It would be ideal if there was a 10 day pass as we were there for 10 days and the last 3 days we had to pay extra for our trains. JR pass does not work on the subway lines so be aware of this, we ended up getting a Suica pass on our iPhone wallet app and this worked very well. We also downloaded the app JapanTravel and you can incorporate your JR pass when selecting directions, this also gives you platform numbers and train names so we didn't get on the wrong trains.

Very convenient and helpful staff

published

Very easy to use once we arrived in Japan. Very helpful staff particularly at new Chitose Airport. Would use again. More escalators would be good to help with heavy luggage.

Great value

published

Informative website which had all the instructions required & advice to purchase within 3 months of travel, not before. Quick delivery with exchange voucher arriving by express post within a couple of days of ordering. Good information in the free Japan Rail Pass guide provided. JR rail pass easy to use in Japan & also allows travel on tourist buses in Hiroshima, the ferry to Miyajima & JR buses in Kanazawa. Reserved seats at no extra cost when booking tickets at JR offices. Definitely value for money if travelling round Japan.

Not good value for us

published

It was not good value really for us. We travelled nagano-kyoto- tokyo. Too hard to use in Kyoto - ended up stressed, catching wrong trains. Not enough info on the web in English. Have used JR east before and was happy with that. Japan Pass was a waste of money

Streamlines your rail travel through Japan

published

Useful and cost effective for the tourist utilising Japan's extensive rail system. The JR offices are located in stations all over the place and the staff are very helpful when trying to plan the best connections on this vast network.

100% recommend when in Japan

published

I’m definitely advising everyone to get a JR pass when going to Japan and using PT. It would have cost us so much more if we had just paid trip by trip. Also this website (Japan Rail Pass Now) delivered my pass the next day when I ordered it (From Melbourne). Amazing.

7 Day Pass

published

Could not fault it. Easy to buy, even easier to book seats and fantastic value. The trains are great and I would certainly use again. Can I suggest you introduce a 10 day pass. I think it would fit a big gap as the14 day is too long

Very happy with the Japanese rail system and pass accessibility to parts of Japan. Book Shinkansen’s day prior to travel and you should be fine. Well worth it, can recommend.

Good but limited

published

Great for long distance travel but few lines within cities. States the pass is valid for all JR lines but there are some lines it isn’t valid for, which is confusing for foreign customers who can’t read japanese and are unfamiliar with the system.

Totally recommend for intercity travel in Japan

published

Japan Rail pass was a dream for our trip to Japan - the attendants at the station were clearly used to the pass and we always got a smiling wave when we went through any station gates. Can also be used on monorail to Tokyo Haneda airport which we hadnt realised. Completely worth it if doing any intercity travel and you get to use the amazing " grade" shinkansen trains which are still AAA grade if you are used to anything in Australia

Straight forward and excellent value

Purchasing our JR passes was very easy. There was great information to help us decide on the best pass for our needs. Exchanging the vouchers for the passes in Japan was straight forward. The digital travel guide to Japan was a great bonus!

Great value!

published

The JR pass made our holiday in Japan so easy with the cost of tickets already taken care of. We were able to travel everywhere we wanted to go (apart from a few subway rides) and it was so easy to use. I would say it was definitely worth the cost so great value. The only downside was the huge queue at Narita airport to redeem the pass. JR staff were super helpful though right throughout our trip. Thoroughly recommend.

Essentials to explore Japan

published

Travel on Japan Rail was always a pleasure, clean, comfortable, efficient, fast, punctual public transport. The extensive network made for easy reach to everywhere in Japan. The Japan Rail Pass in this scenario allowed freedom, pleasant, unencumbered and spontaneous exploring of Japan with all focus on the ‘where’ and ‘what’ to visit with little or no thought required on ‘how’ to reach it - a really relaxing, enjoyable holiday experience.

Good to know travel within Japan covered before you go.

published

Rail Pass is excellent and relatively easy to use. Having access to online timetables would be great, which I did find on the last day. Before then we spoke with staff at information desk for JR Rail a number of times. Sometimes staff were excellent and very helpful. Sometimes not.
Overall, thoroughly recommend.

An Amazing Experience

Easy to reserve seats at any JR office , including trips involving multiple Shinkansen. Every train , without exception, departed on time and was spotlessly clean ! Great value for money . Couldn’t recommend the JR Pass more highly !
