    convenient and worth it. Cheaper and easier to OTOT at own pace since the 5 days are flexible within the 14days period (vs JR consecutive 7 days pass). 1. Queue at JR east centre may be long, depends on luck/ crowd... 2. Note that JR Pass not refundable if your travels got interrupted due to train delays (which apparently seems quite common during this season) 3. If using in Tokyo, only valid on JR Lines (not the subway), so plan your route carefully

What To Expect

Allowing unlimited rides on all trains covering Japan's scenic JR East train line, the JR East Tohoku Area Pass is the ideal way to discover this exciting and picturesque part of Japan. Start with a trip from Narita Airport or Haneda Airport to Tokyo, for example, and then perhaps hop aboard the Shinkansen (Japan's high speed bullet train) to take in the sights of Aomori or Sendai. In addition to JR East lines, your JR East Tohoku Pass allows you to take advantage of some non-JR trains in the Izu and Nikko areas. There is simply no better, or more economic way to cover Japan then by riding on the country's incredibly modern and expansive rail network. Book your tickets now, and see what Japan has to offer!

  • Suet Ling 3 Dec 2018
    It’s valuable for me to have this pass when traveling to Ginzan by Shinkansen 🚅 I was using this pass to reach at Otsuki station 🚉 and went to Kawaguchiko station by using Mt Fuji Pass. But the JR offices are closed too early. I was unable to exchange my JR Tohoku Pass on the first day that I reached Tokyo (Haneda Airport). So I brought my family to exchange the pass at JR Tokyo Station on the next day.
  • Wai Kuen 9 May 2018
    Essential if your trip covers wide areas in Tohoku. A single return trip on shinkansen would cost more than the pass.
  • Wai Kuen 17 Oct 2018
    very useful and convenient for travel in Tohoku area, and you can use it on JR buses now
  • Yeonju 22 Apr 2019
    It’s really convenient if you travel around Tohoku area. I’ve used it to travel Nikko, Sendai, Hirosaki and Aomori. Jr trains are nice and clean and Shinkansen is super fast. You must buy it if you want to trave widely around Japan.
  • Anna Patricia 4 Apr 2019
    One thing I’ll definitely miss about japan is its transportation system as well as the jr passes its very convenient although it is a bit pricey but still it is definitely worth the price!! This is a must when going to different regions in japan
  • SF 11 Mar 2019
    Definitely worth it if you are landing Tokyo airport and going to sendai / Aomori; My trip start ends Feb till 6 March; I went to Zao Yamagata, Ginza Onsen, Aomori, Genbiki and we managed to reserve he Pokémon Joyful train, If you wish to know more can send me an email : sfchoho22@gmail.com
  • Chin 6 Nov 2018
    - Very easy to buy and claim at the JR office in Japan. - The pass itself can be used for any 5 days within 14 days from the date of issuance. - Super worth if you have to travel across cities with the bullet gun train - normally the cost from Tokyo to Shin Aomori is around 17k thb/one way and this trip I used for more than 4 times using this kind of train which is super worth buying.
  • Che Cheong 3 Nov 2018

  • Wing Sze 15 Oct 2018

  • Shek Tung Andraw 8 Sep 2018
