Order your Japan Rail Pass


All Japanese rail passes have to be sent out physically. Please allow at least 14 days of shipping in case of any unexpected delays. If an order is placed too close to your departure date and we estimate a delivery date after your departure, a refund will be issued minus the cost for transaction fees of 1.5% per transaction as well as a 35 EUR handling fee. Transaction percentage may differ if paid with a credit card.

Your name must be written EXACTLY as in your passport, including all the names, and in the proper order. Special letters are not allowed. Names such as Björn are written as Bjoern like in your passport.

The pass is available for:

  • included
    Non-Japanese passport holders under the entry status of "Temporary Visitor".
  • included
    Japanese Citizens who have lived abroad for more than 10 consecutive years with a certificate from their local embassy.

You can NOT purchase a JR Pass if:

  • excluded
    You enter on a student visa.
  • excluded
    You enter on a work visa.
  • excluded
    You are a japanese citizen and have lived abroad for less than 10 years.
  • excluded
    You enter Japan on any other visa than "Temporary Visitor".

Activate your Japan Rail Pass

The JR Pass must be activated within 90 days from the order date. Make sure not to order your pass too far in advance as they can only be activated within 3 months after ordering and are denied exchange on the spot in Japan if it has expired. We therefore recommend that you order your JR Pass about 4 weeks before the planned departure.

Japanese citizen

It is very important that Japanese citizens have obtained a certificate from the Japanese Embassy before purchasing their JR Pass. Children can have their names written in the parents family certificate. All Japanese citizens over the age of 12 must have their own certificate, even if they have lived abroad all their life. This must be issued BEFORE your JR Pass can be ordered from us.

Non-Japanese travelers can ignore this and do not need a certificate from the embassy, you will instead receive a visa-stamp in your passport when you arrive in Japan.

  • Your passport and JR Pass is required to bring along on all train journeys and at all times, incase JR Staff request to see your identity and verify that you are the original pass holder.
