questions & answers: using the japan rail pass



my brother's family was granted a multiple entry tourist visa for 5 years. Are they eligible to buy a JR pass? we are visiting Japan as a group (5 families).

Hi there,

I am afraid not, the JR Pass is generally not issued for travellers using a tourist visa.

Sorry for the bad news.
