questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

leaving from australia tomorrow...

Leaving from Australia tomorrow...

I am leaving Australia tomorrow and I have not pre - purchased a JR weekly pass. I wll be arriving into Tokyo on 11 August 2012. I plan to take the Shinkosan down to Kyoto on 14 August 2012. Can I purchase a JR Weekly Pass online and collect it from a ticket collection box at the Station in Tokyo? or can I just purchase from a ticket box at the Station in Tokyo on the day that I am going down to Kyoto. I will be travelling with one other adult - thanks


Hi there,

I'm afraid that the Japan Rail Pass is only purchasable outside Japan. If you contact our support team at they may be able to help!

Hope this helps!
