Japan Rail Pass

Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass) 

A Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass) is the most convenient and economical way to travel across Japan, especially when travelling long distance. Travelling by train is the ideal way to see Japan, and with trains that are comfortable, clean and easy to ride, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery as you glide across the country.

 The JR Pass is a multi-use discounted ticket, valid for unlimited travel on JR national trains, including most Shinkansen bullet trains and the Narita Express. There are some restrictions on use, for example the JR Pass cannot be used for travel on NOZOMI and MIZUHO trains on the Tokaido, Sanyo, and Kyushu Shinkansen lines.

Designed for foreign visitors who travel to Japan, the JR Pass gives you the flexibility to choose 7, 14 or 21 consecutive day tickets as well as choosing between an Ordinary Pass (economy) and Green Pass (first class). 

 All Blacks Tours have a limited number of JR Passes available for purchase until Wednesday 26 June 2019.
