JR pass, FOR CHEAPER TRAIN TRAVEL

The JR Pass is the ideal travel solution and the best way to discover Japan by train.
 Economical and simple to use, the JR Pass gives you access to the JR network nationwide and is a lot cheaper than buying individual train tickets.



Get the maximum out of your JR Pass: for the price of a return ticket Tokyo-Kyoto, visit the rest of Japan free for 7 days!



what are the advantages of a green pass?

The 'Green Pass' entitles you to travel in the 'Green Car', the equivalent of our 1st class, on all valid Shinkansen (so except Nozomi and Mizuho) and certain fast lines.

The Green Japan Rail Pass is not often used by foreign travellers but, considering the comfort it offers, the space, the hot towel (oshibori) and even free drinks you receive on some routes, it is good value for money.

Buying the Green Japan Rail Pass is a good idea if you are planning on travelling during busy times (May, August and September) because, in addition to the fact that there is more space allocated to each traveller, the Green cars are generally less busy giving you more of a chance of reserving a seat.

Who is eligible for the Japan Rail Pass?

To use the Japan Rail Pass it is necessary to:

  • be visiting for a touristic stay. 
Therefore, the following people are not eligible to use the Japan Rail Pass:
Please note that some visas obtained for special activities other than tourism, even of short duration, do not meet eligibility criteria.

Despite the fact that Railpass is quite expensive, the experience is great in pair with high quality with Japan railway system.\n\nWhat is a bit of inconvenience is a necessity to use paper card. It can be improved by implementing Railpass to Suica. Basically uploading the Railpass to the card.

The JR Rail Pass was one of the best investments that my wife and I made for our month long vacation in Japan. It made travel between cities easy, convenient and comfortable. I recommend purchasing a JR Rail Pass to anyone who visits Japan for a week or more. The trains are comfortable often.
