Mode of purchase of JR Pass

I'm looking either 7 or 14 days JR Pass.

I'm wondering is online purchase the only the mode of purchase of the JR Pass?
Can I walk-in to the Japan Rail pass exchange office in Narita Airport to purchase my 7/14 days JR Pass?

Thank you!



You CANNOT buy a full JR Rail Pass after you have arrived in Japan. The only thing you could do would be to buy some regional passes only.

Good luck!


Hi there,

The JR Pass can only be purchased outside of Japan. If you wish to make use of one, please place on order online here. We will then send you an exchange voucher by express post, this in turn can be exchanged for the JR Pass at major stations, such as Narita Airport.

Hope this helps,
