Buying JR Pass on short notice. Pick up?

Hi I am traveling to Japan from Egypt in 16 hours!
Just found out that you cannot buy JR pass inside Japan, right?
So, can I buy it online tonight and pick it up in Osaka Kansai Airport ticket office?

Appreciate your kind prompt response. Thank you!




Hi Khaled,

That's really quick indeed! At the same time this is a difficult situation. We can ship the pass to you in Japan if you place the order outside of Japan but shipping to Japan does take 3 working days. So the pass would arrive Wednesday next week.

In case you want to order the pass, please contact us directly at so we can sort out the details with you. You can also contact us directly here.

Have a pleasant flight tomorrow!
