The more journeys you make, the bigger savings you enjoy!
The cost of a 7-Day Ordinary Pass can actually be cheaper than a return ticket from Tokyo to Osaka when purchased as two single tickets. Therefore, any subsequent trips you make within the validity of your Pass cost absolutely nothing!
The main reason to buy the JR Pass is for the excellent discounts it provides for those taking the impressive and world-famous Shinkansen (Bullet Trains) all over Japan. The savings that can be made using a JR Pass compared with buying single tickets are phenomenal and with the exchange rate conversion updated weekly, you are sure to get the best deal available anywhere.
You can even use it on the Narita Express and other airport lines to / from the city such as Haneda Airport and Osaka Kansai Airport.
Travel anytime/anywhere*. You are not constrained to travel on specific train and time, as in the case of a single journey ticket. The JR Pass is available in a selection of 7, 14 and 21 day validity periods to cover varied travel durations.

There’s no need to queue every time you need to travel. Once your JR Pass is validated, you can go straight to the platform and board the un-reserved carriage. Another fantastic benefit of buying a JR Pass is that once you validate a Japan Rail Pass you can choose your own seating arrangements for free - a privilege that can become costly on normal tickets. You can reserve a seat in advance at no extra cost. Just visit any JR reservation office at the station with your JR Pass.
Selected hotels under the JR Group offers Rail Pass holders discounted rates on accommodation across Japan. Please visit www.jrhotelgroup.com
