    If you’re planning to travel within Japan by train or you’re planning to take a couple of Shinkansen, the JR pass is the way to go. I bought the 7-days one and you need to activate your pass when you land in Japan with the receipt KLOOK will send you. You can choose the activation date and after that the pass will last for 7, 14 or 21 days.

    The Japan Rail Pass can save you a LOT of money. You can buy the Japan Rail Pass online at Klook. If you just make one round trip between Tokyo and Kyoto on the shinkansen (bullet train) and use the pass to travel between Narita and Tokyo, you’ve already saved money with the pass. You can only use a Japan Rail Pass with a tourist visa (people on longer-term visas like work visas, student visas and permanent residence visas cannot use Japan Rail Passes). Obviously, saving money is the main reason to buy a Japan Rail Pass, but the advantages don’t stop there. The pass is very easy to use: it’s valid on all JR lines and covers the shinkansen (bullet train). With the pass, you don’t have to worry about buying tickets and fishing for change in your pocket/wallet each time you take a trip: you just show the pass to the attendant at the turnstiles and you board the next available train.

    The JR rail pass is a must if you want to explore different cities on a budget in a short amount of time. Unfortunately we went on a very busy period so sometimes there were unavailable seats on the cars, and in that case you stand until someone get off on a stop. If I had known it would be so busy I would have bought the green ticket instead. I had used the JR rail pass before in early December 2017 and it was amazing because there were a lot of empty seats available. Be careful to check which trains you can actually use and ones you cannot.

    We bought a 21 day JR pass for our trip last March. we used it extensively travelling from Narita to Kyushu via Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Fukuoka and saved ourselves lots of money. The rail system in Japan is fantastic and it was surprisingly easy to find our way around. Trains are so reliable and run exactly to time. They are also very clean and comfortable. We travelled from Tokyo to Osaka on the Shinkansen and were gifted the most amazing view of Mt Fuji in all its glory. A fantastic bonus. We happened to be in Japan when we got the call from the UK foreign office to get back to uk because of the Corona virus and we had to travel from Tokyo to Osaka and back again chasing flights. Saved us so much money and gave us peace of mind. Thoroughly recommend this JR Pass. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

    I bought the 7 day pass and can definitely say it was worth it. Was able to go around the 3 regions in Japan by hopping on and off JR trains. Super easy to use. You just need to present the JR PASS every time yoy enter and exit a station. Will highly recommend. If you want to save on transport cost especially if you arr going to other prefectures as well.

    At first, i'm worried if i can get the voucher delivered to me in such last minutes purchase but luckily it arrived fast! 😄 When i already in Japan, due to Corona virus, lot of place is closed..huhu. And there are some place is overpromoted than reality thus i'm so dissapointed.😤 Due to season changes, the snow in Shirakawago and Ginzan Onsen has melt, i'm so sad as i wish to see the snow scenery.. 😭🤧 I wnt to go other Onsen but i really don't like thebus,it is not convenient as train. One time i go down different stop and try to go up back but the driver ignore me..its the same bus though. And the payment method is different based on prefecture. luckily i know Japanese 😑 Because some bus announced the stop in Japanese; no board announcement written. But there also some +ve point, the train was not packed, the train Station was easy to walk through, no need to queue buy ticket or food or ask information.😎 Information counter TIC was really helpful. Once stop at another prefecture train Station, pls go to the TIC because they have more information and details.😚 The spot view also easy to take picture since not much people around. 😅 But during my last trip, i found great place!!😆 Kyoto and Kanazawa(Kenrokuen Garden) !! The scenery was SUPER amazing. TOTALLY WORTH IT! 💖 (Next time i will go USJ in Osaka) 😍 And because u have this pass, eventhough u lost and pass through many exit also fine lol..(of coz covered by JR only)😳 Overall satisfied. I take this as my trip experiments so next time i already have an idea best place to go again.😆

    Highly recommended if you travel more than one place throughout the journey. I use this pass to take shinkasen from Hokkaido to Tokyo, Tokyo to Osaka, Osaka to Tokyo. Very comfortable. Bear in mind that, using hand phone to talk with some one else inside the train is considered as rude to local people...
