Hi! I'm from the Philippines and will travel to Japan on Dec 14-22, 2014. May I ask if we can purchase the JR Pass after we land in Fukuoka, Japan or do we need to purchase it ahead?
We plan to visit Fukuoka, Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo.
Thanks!

Hello there,

The JR Pass needs to be purchased outside of Japan and it is not possible to do so in Japan. Be sure to order one before departure.

I would certainly recommend one, given the amount of travel you plan to do!

Enjoy Japan!

Thanks Daniel!

What will be the whether in Japan in Decemeber? Would you recommend us bringing winter clothes or a coat will be fine?
Thanks again

Hi Again!

It depends where you are in Japan, Fukuoka could be pretty mild. However it could certainly snow in Kyoto and going up to Tokyo would increase the chance. I would certainly pack something warm but at the same time. Maybe one set of extra warm cloths and normal for the rest. I guess you could pack a little less warm if you just stay within the cities.

Let me know if I can help with anything else :D
