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

Your site is hard to use

published

The constant pop ups are irritating and of no value (unless your intent is to annoy potential customers, in which case you were successful), the knowledge that someone from Fairfield (and other numerous locations) is also looking at the site is of no value to me, please allow customers to view the site without harassment,

Poor knowledge

published

I was horrified to find that their "rail expert" didn't even know that the Shinkansen stopped at Shinagawa, and told me I had to go to Tokyo Station from Haneda to catch a service to Shin Osaka. When I queried this, they corrected the information, but I simply got a "sorry for the inconvenience" from another "expert".

Rail pass fail

published

Cannot be used on many services. If you want to book a seat you need to book the day before, which means youll be wasting your time at train stations.

We needed to be able to book seats on Shinkansen before we left Australia as it was to late when we arrived and spent most of our travel standing up. We paid for first class because we are older and wearing out so this was a major problem. Other than than as always the staff were great

Terrible

published

Was a disappointing situation that you have to pre book this and getting a refund is almost impossible. Due to the typhoon we only used this for one trip so was a complete waste of money and very disappointing that we could not refund it.

Unnecessary ..Queuing

Off 10 hour flight had to wait over 1 hour for JP Rail pass Narita airport to Tokyo Ticket.
Was so tired did not order next trip.....2 days later waiting 1.5 hours for other trip tickets.

Waited another 1 hour to move cancelled ticket from PM to AM Ticket same day.

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.

Needs to allo booking from home before you arrive in Japan

published

Need to do what Eurail does -allows bookings from outside of host country including booking seats and posts tickets before you leave home -Japan rail system is too cumbersome and needs to be modernized.

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.
