What's a Japan Rail Pass?

About Japan Rail Pass

The Japan Rail Pass is an all-inclusive rail pass that allows unlimited rides on covered transportation systems across Japan. Exclusive to tourists with a Temporary Visitor visa, JR passes provide convenient access to the country's extensive Japan Railway network, connecting multiple cities and regions for easy traveling. Your chosen JR pass allows point-to-point travel aboard Japan's famous high-speed bullet trains (Shinkansen) and all JR trains including the JR ferry, JR buses, and a select number of major Airport Express trains.

What is the difference between an Exchange Order and JR pass?

Exchange Order (Physical or Electronic):

  • This document is required to redeem your actual JR pass. You will receive a physical Exchange Order at pick up counters in local airports or by delivery. You may select your collection option at Checkout.
  • You must receive this Exchange Order before departing to Japan. Check these samples of a Physical Exchange Order and an Electronic Exchange Order (eMCO)
  • JR Pass:

    This is the actual pass you will use to board covered transportation systems in Japan. You must redeem your JR Pass at any JR Pass office in Japan with your Exchange Order and passport.

    What date should I select in the calendar when booking my JR Pass?

    The date you select when booking is the pass redemption date - meaning the date you intend to collect your physical JR Pass.

    For Exchange Order pick up at local airports or the Klook Hong Kong Office, please take note of the counter/office operational hours.

    If you opted for Exchange Order delivery, book your JR pass at least 7 business days before departing for Japan (holidays are not counted).

    When can I activate my JR Pass once I have redeemed it?

    Here's what the redemption process is like for the JR Pass:

  • You’ll first receive the Exchange Order. After you receive the Exchange Order, you have 90 days to redeem your JR pass from the voucher confirmation date.
  • After redeeming your actual JR pass, you can choose an activation date within 30 days from the redemption date. Please request staff assistance at JR Pass offices to set your pass activation date.
  • Who can purchase a JR Pass?

    All non-Japanese passport holders entering Japan with a Temporary Visitor status are allowed to purchase a JR pass.

    Japanese passport holders are not eligible to purchase JR Passes.
