questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

accidently put only one n in last name instead of two.

accidently put only one N in last name instead of two.

This might sound utterly stupid to ask, but since there are no passport tickets on the reservation JR passports I have to ask, still have one week to go, we got the tickets - I ordered for my friend and myself, just that her last name in her passport has two "N"s, unlike the tickets I ordered... so.. will it be a problem?


Hi there,

The honest answer is: it depends on the clerk at JR. I certainly know of people who's name has been misspelled on their pass who have been successful, but can't guarantee it.
