jr pass for cultural activites

JR pass for cultural activites

I Am going to enter japan with a cultural activities visa which is valid for 90 day and i'm staying there for only two months.
In addition to that, I Will not get a salary within the duration of my stay in Japan.
So basically, I have no more advantages than a temporary visa holder.
Could I be eligible for a Jr pass ?



Hi there,

I am afraid that you would not qualify for the JR Pass, the JR Pass is limited to visitors who enter Japan under a tourist visa. Any other type is not eligible.

Sorry for the bad news!
