buying tickets and booking tickets

buying tickets and booking tickets

hi there

we are going to Japan in May
Me, my wife and our baby, we live in China. As we are Brazilian, we had to apply for Visa in the Japan consulate in China. My father in law is going with us. As he still leaves in Brazil, he appplied for the Visa in Brazil

questions`
1- can I buy the 3 tickets, for adults, and ask to deliver in China, or necessary to buy 2 to deliver in China, and 1 to deliver in Brazil?
2 - do I have to buy ticket for a baby (1y and 6 months old)?
3 - we will arive in Narita, and go straight to Kyoto. On the other days, we plan to go to Nara and Hiroshima, stay some days in Tokyo, and then, back to China. Can I use JRP in these locations?
4 and finally (sorry for all these questions), I still not understanding how do I book the trains with JRPass. For instance, after I arrive in Narita, and already going to Kyoto, shouldn´t I book the train in advance?

Thank you for your assistance and patience

best regards

Hi there!

1.) Yes this is possible but please place the orders separately for each other, this way it will b easy to ship them apart from eachother.

2.) No, children below the age of 6 are free. You can find the details here.

3.) Yes all these places are covered, making for easy travel!

4.) (Don't worry about all the questions, we are here to help!) You can book tickets up to 5 min before departs. Only is busy (national holi)days is it recommended to reserve seats long in advance. The details on how to make seat reservations can be found here. http://www.jrpass.com/blogs/reserving-seats-boarding-the-bullet-train

Hope this helps!

´THank you very much for your prompt and useful reply.
Just one more thing: regarding the 1st question, no problem if I buy the 3 tickets and ask to deliver together for me , here in China right?
Thanks again
