Is it possible to be sent the 'Japan by Train' guide in advance of our tickets? Our trip starts in Tokyo on October 20th 2018 and we were hoping to do some planning in the next few weeks be we leave?

Kind Regards

Hi Andrew,

Due to the high cost involved with shipping, we can't sent out the guide without purchase.

A JR Pass has to be activated within 3 months of purchase, that means you could order yours now and get the booklet at the same time.

Hope this helps,
