using japan railway pass in kyushu

Dear Daniel,

we plan to buy 14 days japan railway pass.
I`m a bit confused: can we use it for all Kyushu? Does it cover our trip from Osaka to Fukuoka, Kurume, Nagasaki, Kagoshima and back to Tokyo?
Best wishes,
Alex

Dear Alex,

Yes all these routes are covered by the JR Pass and you can use all train lines around Kyushu and go to Tokyo too.

Shinkansen can be used for all these places expect for Nagasaki which is reached by limited express train.

Hope this helps!

Thank you Daniel, Its really good news. I wasnt sure because I`ve found somewhere taht we can use it just in the north of Kyusu. Does it mean that JR pass is like JR Kyushu, JR Shikoku, JR West, JR central, JR East and JR Hokkaido all in one?
Best,
Ola

Hi Ola,

Actually yes, the JR Pass is valid nation wide which includes all 6 JR regions. You could travel all the way from Kagoshima (south in Kyushu) to Wakkanai all the way north in Hokkaido using the JR Pass without having to pay anything extra.

We also have an interactive map with all lines covered by the JR Pass.

yep, I saw this map. It`s really helpful. Just needed to make sure, because of tones of informations in internet, wich sometimes contradict with each other.
And about shinkansen marked on the map, sholuld we always ask on the station wich is covered by JR pass (I know about Mizuho and Nozomi)?

oh, one more thing: do you send JR pass only by FedEx? I swa an info that you also use Royal Mail. We had a lot of trouble with Royal Mail last time we ordered something from Uk (we still didn`t get it after 3 months...).
Is it possible to choose the company delivering JR pass (FedEx is fast and really good so we prefer it)?
Best,
Ola

Hi Ola,

FedEx is used for all dispatches outside of the UK, so we'll send your order with FedEx for sure!

All stations on the Shinkansen can be reached using the JR Pass, there are only some types of trains (The Nozomi and Mizuou) which are excluded.

Best wishes,
Daniel
