buying JR Pass using old passport

Hi, I would like to ask, if it is ok and no problem in using the JRPASS as I bought the JRPASS using old passport, but will be arriving in Japan using new passport (just renewed my passport)?


Hello there,

That does not matter at all, you just need to present a valid passport + visa when exchanging the JR Pass.
