questions & answers: general japan travel



hi there,

good morning..

im a malaysian ,as i know we do not need to apply visa to enter japan since last year but when i read the terms&condition in buying JR pass it stated there we must apply temporary visa..Can anyone pls tell me the most update T&C in jr pass?

Thank you.


Hello there,

Malaysians can now enter Japan under a 14 day tourist visa, this will be stamped in your passport on arrival and is enough to quality for the JR Pass.

You can thus use the JR Pass, given that you use this way to enter Japan or already have a tourist visa.

Hope this helps,
