Hi there,

Provided your daughter is under 6 years old, which if she is born on 01 dec 2006 she will be until 01 dec 2012, she will be eligible for free travel without a JR Pass during september 2012.

Hope this helps!

Hi there,

Yes, that\s correct. Showing the passport is all you will need to do (if asked).

Hope this helps!
