When to buy jr pass

Hi. I am from the philippines. Our scheduled flight to japan is on sept 28th and we will be purchasing jr passes for the trip. If i buy from this website, how soon before the trip should we order online? Considering delivery time and all? Thank you.


Hi there,

While shipping to the Philippines is generally fast, I would recommend placing your order at least 14 days in advance. This way you are sure the pass arrives in time and you can put your mind to more important matters. Such as planning your trip :)

Hope this helps,
