Urgent information needed

Dear Sir/ Madam,

My wife Saumya and I are visiting Japan from 21.12.2013 to 07.01.2014

We are Indian Citizens and have the required visa in Place.

We fly out of Mumbai on 20.12.2013 night ( 21.12.2013 early morning) and land at Narita Airport on 21.12.2013

If i want to use the JR pass for a week starting 23.12.2013, and i book online today, my question is that if the Fedex reaches post pur reaching Japan, is there a way we can still use the pass?

Kindly help.



Hi Shailesh,

You should be able to use the JR Pass with the correct Visa.
The main issue is that there may not be enough time to get your pass to you in India (normally it takes around 4 working days). A better option may be to ship your JR Pass to your Hotel in Japan. It is important that you place the order before you depart for Japan.

Please contact us directly at if you want to made use of this option, we'd be more than happy to set it all up for you!

Kind Regards,
