questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

NEX

Hi Daniel,

We arrive at Narita airport and our hotel is in Shinjuku, do we have to make a reservation on the NEX if we have a JR Pass ? Also, do we have to make a reservation from Tokyo to Koyoto and back when using JR Pass ?

Thanks do much for all your help.

Cheers

Hello Sydney,

The Narita Express needs a reservation beforehand, you can make a reservation at the same time when you exchange the JR pass.

Tokyo - Kyoto does not require a reservation but I would still recommend doing as. It just gives that extra peace of mind of having secured seating.

Hope this helps,
