exchange pass number same as jr pass number?

Exchange pass number same as JR Pass number?

I would like to make advance reservations for JR travel prior to exchanging my arrival in Japan. Is the number on the upper right hand corner of my Exchange Pass the same as the JR Pass number necessary for making advance reservations? Thank you.


Hi there,

The JR Pass number will be provided once you exchange the voucher for the actual pass.

However it should be fine to use the Exchange number for reservations.
