Perfect buy for our trip to Japan!

published

Very easy to use across the Japan Railway stations. Even though we required to use the subway lines for some of our trips, this still saved us heaps of money.

Quick to purchase,easy to use

Our J R pass was an essential part of our great Japanese trip we recently finished.
The trains took us to all our destinations, including some off the tourist track.
The trains are super comfortable,on time,clean and smooth.
We would definitely get the pass again

Good for Tokyo and Osaka, and travelling between cities.

published

Easy to activate and order from Australia. Used the pass in Tokyo and Osaka a lot, but not so much in Kyoto and Hiroshima who seem to be more dependent on bus and tram lines that are not covered. Well worth the money if you are going across country on the train lines, and are staying near JR lines in bigger cities.

JR 14 Day Rail Pass

published

I believe a JR pass is a must for anyone spending 14 days or more in Japan. The caveat being that you intend to do spend time in two or more cities. The pass really comes into its own for inter city travel throughout the length and breadth of the country. We mad the most of the pass locally this time round when we spent 4 days in Hiroshima. We used the pass for the hop on and hop off tourist bus and the local train and ferry to Miyajima.

Ideal purchase

published

Buying the JR rail pass is very convenient. Just bare in mind it is only used on JR trains and the shinkansen. Ticket purchase is still required for the subway. If you get on a JR train and then transfer to a subway line, you will need to purchase a ticket when you exit at the subway station or before you depart.
I could not recommend the JR pass more though as you will save time and money!

Excellent service and reliability

published

For the price it is really well worth it, just be sure to reserve your seats as soon as you can and at least one day in advance. Some Shinkansen are very full, and you may not be able to get a seat. We did that and had no issues, trains ran on time all the time as you expect from JR.

Japan Rail Pass is Fabulous and worth it

published

Was easy to purchase and delivered quickly even in the pre Christmas mail madness.
We have been using the Pass throughout Japan for the Shinkansen and local JR Lines especially around Tokyo and Osaka cities. When we compared the cost of purchasing individual tickets to the JR Pass is was clear that purchasing the pass would be the best value. Then when adding the local JR Line use in the cities that has been a bonus.
Using the JR Pass in Japan is easy. The train stations clearly show where you need to go to quickly show the pass as passing through the gate. Also exchanging the voucher for the pass at KIX airport was a breeze.
If you plan on utilising the super efficient transport system in Japan the JR Pass is worth it.

Worth the money if you have multiple places to visit.

published

We're a family of 4 and travelled to multiple cities over 2 weeks so well worth the money as it covers both tbebullet and express trains which are great. Only point of note is it doesn't cover the metro subways, but they're relatively cheap anyway.

Definitely worth the money!

published

Purchase and delivery of the Rail Pass were trouble free.
The rail pass is very handy to have if you plan to travel to a few different places whilst in Japan.
I usually check prices of train fares on Hyperdia before I travel to see what is the cheapest option (Rail Pass or Pay as you go).
JR run train services just about everywhere. There may be the odd time where you need to pay for a subway ticket but it still ends up being cost effective to have the pass.

No issues encountered

published

We experienced no issues and the service was fantastic.

Only suggestion is that make it better known that the rail pass can be used for travel to Narita airport on the express train.

Otherwise a great product and very well done.

Great pass. Easy to use!

published

Very easy to use. Valid on most lines through Tokyo but we also had to buy a fair few extra rides. Maybe the passes should include local lines as well. It would have been a bit faster to have some sort of electronic ticket too rather than having to show the attendant every time we went in and out of the gates. All in all, Japan trains are excellent. They are always on time, always clean, quiet, easy to navigate and safe. We loved the shinkanzens too!

We just spent 12 days in Japan, travelling from Shinjuku to Hakuba, back to Tokyo then Kyoto and Osaka and lots of day trips in between thanks to the JR Pass. The staff were also very helpful and trains on time and clean.

Great value and such an efficient system

published

Japan rail pass was so worthwhile for us.
Only criticism was the paper based system, would be better if the pass itself could be issued electronically eg a QR code like an electronic boarding pass

Great way to get around Japan when travelling to different areas

published

The pass covers a lot of areas outside Tokyo and saves you money if you are travelling around to different parts of Japan. We covered the snow monkeys in Nagano, back to Tokyo, then to Kyoto, Hiroshima, Fukuoka and back to Tokyo. It was well worth it and easy to use, just show your pass at the gates to staff. Easy to cash in voucher at the airport for the passes then on our way.

Fantastic Value

published

Planning your trip can lead to maximum value but even if you are not completely organised it is still good value. Apart from the value Japan Rail is easy to use with helpful information and ticket offices. I was concerned that it would be difficult. How wrong I was.

Very happy with my refund

published

All I would say is that the express post highlighted on the website is not a true express post. Also for customers Australia Post does not track parcels accurately and the scanning of parcels only happens at start and finish of delivery. This is frustrating when your waiting for an important parcel. May I suggest option of express courier.

Super efficient

published

We purchased JR pass from overseas to be used when travelling in Japan. Easy to purchase and travel between Kyoto, Tokyo and Nozawa Onsen. The tickets were posted to my hotel address in Japan on time. When my iPhone was lost on the train between Nazawa Onsen and Tokyo it was recovered and posted to my hotel efficiently.

We used JR-Pass for a Shinkansen return trips between Tokyo and Osaka, express train lines between Osaka and Kyoto, and some JR lines in Tokyo and Osaka. Really worth the money.
