Hi there,

I'm afraid you must bring your printed JR Pass documentation with you in order to activate your Japan rail pass in Japan. If you are unable to ask a friend or relative to send your jrpasses onto you in Japan, one possible solution is to reorder, choosing your address in Japan as your delivery destination. Then on return you can return your unused jrpasses for a refund. Please see our terms and conditions](http://www.jrpass.com/terms_and_conditions) for more information on this process.

Hope this helps!
