Can we buy the 7 day JR Pass when we land in japan?

I am traveling in Korea currently, and will go to Japan next week. I understand that I can order the 7day JR Pass in advance but it will have to be Fed Ex to an address in Korea. I am concerned that I will not get it in time due to me being unfamiliar with mailing address protocols for Korean mail. Is it possible to buy the 7day JR Pass after I land in Japan? Or is there an option to buy the pass and just show the receipt or electronic copy of the exchange order? Thank you

Hi there,

You'll need the physical voucher in order to validate the JR Pass. Unfortunately it is not possible to pick it up directly in Japan.

However we can ship it to your accommodation/hotel/address in Japan. Please contact us directly via support@jrpass.com if you wish to have it shipped directly to Japan. We will then help you set up all the details.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your reply. I am still in Korea leaving for Japan next week Friday 8/29. . Is there any way to receive an electronic voucher and I can just print it?

Hi again,

Unfortunately there's no electronic means of sending the voucher to you.

Shipping to South Korea only takes 2 working days. So there's more than enough time to post it.

You could always ask your host or accommodation to check your mail address. I've also lived in South Korea myself and would be more than happy to take a look as well.

Let me know if there's anything I can help with,
Daniel
