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.

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.

Don’t travel without one!

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.

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.

Very easy ordering process, and was delivered quickly even during Christmas period.
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.

Takes the pain out of JR Pass application with a one-stop application and payment process, good information on how it works and what to do to collect on arrival and a very fast mail service to get your paperwork to you as soon as possible. Highly recommended.

A wonderful purchase and a matchless train experience

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.

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.
