Hello

Once I got the JRP, can I actually book trains before getting to Japan? How?

I assume I can buy the Exchange Order JRP online before getting to Japan and need to exchange it once I get there. However, do you know if trains can be booked in advance (before validating the Exchange Order)?

Thanks!

Hi there,

This is something which is asked a lot about on the forum.
You can start making reservations once you arrive in Japan and have exchange your JR pass order for the actual pass.

However don't worry too much about reserving seats in advance, trains depart up to once every 10min and can hold over a 1,000seats each making it a rare occasion that no seats are available.

I hope this helps!
