I’m going to Japan in november and I already got my JRPass. However, my friend has got her student visa with a residence permit of 90 days and won’t be able to use it even though she already purchased. Now the questions are:
- will she be able to ask for a refund of her unused exchange voucher for JRPass at a JR office? - we’re planning in doing Osaka - Nara - Kyoto - Hiroshima - Miyajima - Kobe and Himeji in a week. Will she be eligible for a Kansai Hiroshima regional pass with her student visa? I believe she’ll have to buy Tokyo-Osaka ticket on her own, so we’re looking for a cheap alternative regional pass that can be used regardless of visa. - does the kansai hiroshima pass cover as well fast train from Shin Osaka to Kyoto and back?
