Purchasing JR pass

Hi there,

I am having some difficulty purchasing my pass.

I am intending to pick it up from New Chitose airport on the 15th of March.

The only stage I can get to is the instant quote, where am I to go from there to order the pass?

Hi there,

I see that you are trying to order from Japan. Unfortunately we can only accept order originating from outside of Japan.

You could ask a friend/family member or acquittance to order the JR Pass for you from outside of Japan and ship it to you.

Thank you!
Daniel

Its average, we can't fully guarantee delivery as there are always things that can happen outside of our control.

Still FedEx is very reliable and speedy.

Its tricky to say, the next dispatch would be tomorrow, then add 3 business days to it for delivery. I would expect it on the 14th or 15th to be delivered but delays can happen.

Thank you,

Please keep UK time in mind, as the dispatch will be made from London.

Should be in time if you order within 20h as of now.

Thank you!
