JR Pass Fare

Hi there, I want to inquiry about the JR fare. We will landed at Japan on September, 2016 and will have a vacation for 7 days, if we purchase this JR pass are we entitle to use it all over japan by issuing one time payment only or there will be another charge apply?

for example if we travel from Tokyo to Kyoto, do we need to pay another fare or we just need to show our pass? I am so glad if you could help. Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Hi there,

The JR Pass is a one time purchase and is good for nationwide travel. We have a great map here with all lines included. Travel between Tokyo - Kyoto on the Shinkansen is also included. You can either just show the pass and take a non-reserved seat, or reserve a seat free of charge in advance.

Do note that the JR Pass does not cover every kind of transport, for instance the Metro is not included.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

Hi again!

1.) The JR Pass can be used on local JR lines in Kyoto, these are handy to access places such as Fushimi Inari, Arashiyama and Uji. Other parts of Kyoto can't be reached using the JR Pass and would require other transport.

2.) There are many local lines in Tokyo you can use with the JR Pass, such as the JR Yamanote loop line that stops at many important station in Tokyo, including Shinjuku, Shibuya, Tokyo station, Ueno, Ikebukuro, Harajuku and so on.
