JR Hotel discounts with the Japan Rail Pass

JR hotel

Short-term foreign visitors to Japan have had the opportunity to enjoy the Japan Rail Pass for many years now. However, most pass holders are still unaware of the JR Hotel discounts they are entitled to.

The Japan Rail Pass gives you unlimited access to all Japan Railways Group transport. These include the Shinkansen bullet trains, Narita Express, and the loop metro lines in Tokyo and Kyoto. There are also children’s discount passes available.

The JR Pass offers other perks, such as car rental discounts and reduced rates at many attractions around Japan.

But many tourists still do not know about the discount accommodation possibilities available. Pass holders can take advantage of discounted prices with the JR Hotel Group.

About JR Hotels

Founded in 1987, JR Hotel Group is the largest joint business venture in Japan.

With 65 hotels located near major train stations and spread all around the country, the JR Hotel discounts included in the JR Pass make for the best value for money vacation plan in Japan.

The hotels are situated in many great locations such as major Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka train stations.

Some of the most popular JR Hotels amongst JR Pass holders are:

  • Tokyo Station Hotel
  • Hotel Mets Shibuya
  • Hotel Granvia Kyoto
  • Hotel Granvia Hiroshima
  • Hotel Granvia Osaka
  • Hotel Metropolitan Edmont
  • Hotel Metropolitan Morioka

All of these plus 58 hotels more form part of the Japan Rail discounted hotels. If you present your Japan Rail Pass at the reception upon arrival, you may also enjoy some special services (depending on the hotel).

You can find a full list of the hotels below, along with their contact details and where to find them.

  1. Dear sir/madam
    We will be taking the shinkansen from Tokyo to Toyama.
    Toyama day trip to Kanazawa
    Then we will be taking the local trains from Toyama to Takayama and Takayama to Nagoya.
    Lastly from Nagoya back to Tokyo
    Will we be able to travel for free using the JR pass?
    Does it cover the Alphine route?
    Thank you

    1. Hi S L Song!

      Yes – you will be able to cover almost the whole trip with your Japan Rail Pass!

      – To get from Tokyo to Toyam you may take the Hokuriku Shinkansen. This line will also cover your day trip between Toyama and Kanazawa.
      – Then you can take the Takayama Line to Nagoya, which is also covered by the Japan Rail Pass.
      – Last but not least, you will also be able to use your Japan Rail Pass to get from Nagoya to Tokyo by riding the Tokaido Shinkansen line.

      Happy travels!

    1. Hi Faisal! Cherry blossom season typically occurs in late March and early April, so if you are travelling in November you won’t be able to see any of it yet. Regarding the hotel discounts you can get with your Japan Rail Pass, please read this article you are commenting – all the details you need are detailed here 😉 Happy travels!

  3. Hi,
    I want to go to Imperial palace from Tokyo tower, is there a train I can use that is coveres by JR Pass?

  4. Hi! We plan to stay at Hotel Mets Tabata, Kita-Ku, Tokyo in October. Can you please advise on the best means of reaching the hotel from Narita/ Haneda airport?

    1. Hi Dhiraj!

      Tokyo’s center can be reached from both airports with your Japan Rail Pass. From Narita Airport you can travel in the Narita Express, and from Haneda you can just take the Tokyo Monorail.

      Regarding the best way to reach your hotel, we recommend you to contact their staff directly – they are the ones who will give you the best advice 😉

      Happy travels!

  7. Hello,

    We will be visiting Japan in July. Plan to stay in Tokyo for a few days then visit to Osaka and Kyōto, what is the best route to take from Tokyo to Osaka and from Osaka to Kyōto Via the JR line, do we need to take any local lines where we need to pay extras in between the JR route on our way there?

    Thank you in advance!

  8. We arrive in Tokyo Narita on the 7th April 2018, and looking to stay in Yokohama for two nights. We have our exchange vouchers for JR Pass Green Car. We have observed that one of your Hotels in Yokohama – Hotel New Grand is one of them. Would we be entitled to discount prices? and if so, how would we book this hotel, is there a Code to quote – would it be through this company.
    I look forward to your reply.
