On the last minute booked Flight from Taiwan to Japan.
Arriving at Japan Tuesday April 30th

Is it possible to receive the pass April 29th? or ship to Narita?
Staying in Narita April 30th

I am only planning to Visit the Following area:
Narita
Tokyo Prefecture
Mt. Fuji

Maybe Kyoto/Osaka

Purchasing JR Pass a bit too much?
I read some where, I can buy JR East Pass in Japan. Does it cover Tokyo to Fuji and Kyoto?

Hi Andy,

Sorry to bring you bad news but passes are only shipped out during working days, so we would not be able to get it to you in time.

What you could try is to buy a JRPass locally, here is a list with re-sellers in Asia.

A Japan Rail Pass will be useful, if you decide to go to Kyoto/Osaka but you won't need one if you just visit Tokyo and Fuji-san.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Andy!

Fuji is not too far from Tokyo and is reached by private railway / bus, usually the most economic way is to take a bus from Shinjuku - which is about 1,700Yen. The JR Kanto Pass also covers it but is not worth it for just Fuji.

From Kyoto - Tokyo the Nation Wide JR Pass is the only pass that covers it.
