The JR East company is releasing the JR East Tohoku Area Pass, which will give travellers access to JR East lines (limited express, local, and express) within the Tohoku Region, and to Shinkansen from Tokyo that go to northern Honshu, as well as certain trains on private lines that go to Nikko and Izu. This pass is valid during 5 flexible days over a period of 14 days.
With this new pass, travellers can explore cultural highlights such as Nikko and Izu, as well as the cities of Sakudaira, Gala-Yuzawa, Fukushima, Yamagata, Shinjo, Sendai, Morioka, Akita, Hachinohe, and Shin-Aomori, an access point to the region of Hokkaido.
The JR East Tohoku Area Pass consists of an e-ticket. We do not send any document physically by mail. Your voucher will only be delivered to you by email once your reservation will be confirmed. Note that the pass must be exchanged with a printed copy of the e-voucher within 3 months of the purchase date.
A child price (6 to 11 years of age) is available for this pass. Access to trains is free for accompanied infants aged 5 years or under. Japanese passport holders can NOT use this pass.
