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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
