Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can I buy the Japan Rail Pass in Japan?

The JR Pass is a special discounted ticket that provides access to primary forms of transportation provided by the JR Group in Japan, with a few exceptions, for 7, 14, or 21 days.

The JR Pass can be purchased online or through specialized agents, like this website. However, since March 8, 2017, and on a trial basis, the pass is also sold at selected stations inside Japan, at an increased cost. While you are now able to purchase the JR Pass in Japan, please keep in mind that it is only sold in particular stations, at a higher price and you are required to pay in Yens, as no other currency will be accepted.
