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.

Excellent!

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.

Would definitely recommend if using multiple trains across Japan, particularly the bullet trains

published

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

published

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.

Very valuable pass to travel across Japan

published

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!

Voucher exchange

published

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.

A good way to get around in Kansai

Friendly and helpful staff with the JR. Everywhere you want to go they try to help you in English. I am Austrian and I had a very good experience within the two weeks I stayed in Osaka.

Great way to get around

published

Was able to use on 90% of our travel from fast trains and around city JR buses and train.
Works in most cities or getting to nearby towns where you then use the local services.
Well worth it

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.
