JR Pass for children 11 years and 4 months

I would like to ask about JR Pass for children. Her age is 11 years and 4 months on the Date at travel to Japan. Please tell me. Can I buy JR Pass for children for her?


Hi there!

Provided your daughter is still 11 years old at the date of travel she will qualify for a Child class Japan Rail Pass.

The Child pass is 50% cheaper than the adult Japan Rail Pass - you can find information on current pricing by clicking the 'child tickets' tab on the jrpass tickets page. We also have more general child travel related information on our blog post explaining more detail about options for children.

Hope this helps!
