questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

jr pass misspelled last name

JR PASS misspelled last name


My JR Pass arrived and I am worried about how my last name is spelled, my last name is Treviño (as in my passport) and in my JR Pass is shown as Trevino.

Do you think I´m going to have any trouble?

Thanks a lot!


Hi there,

I don't think that this should be a problem. The name check process is not as strict as you may find at airlines.

To be sure, please contact our support team directly at with your order details and we will check if everything is good.

Hope this helps,
