What to do if you have forgotten or lost your Japan Rail Pass
It will be very unfortunate if you are unable to use your Japan Rail Pass as you have forgotten it at home or can’t locate your JRPass in Japan.

To avoid such disappointment, please keep your Japan Rail Pass in a safe place with your passport and tickets.

In the case of a forgotten, lost or stolen Japan Rail Pass, please contact our customer support team (support@jrpass.com) as soon as possible for further advice.

Japan Railway rules regarding forgotten, lost or stolen Japan Rail Pass Exchange Order tickets

Unfortunately the JR exchange office will only accept the original physical ticket vouchers that you will receive from us and the tickets we provide can not be reprinted or reproduced.

Japan Railway will not accept any e-versions, scanned copies or email confirmations of your order.
