jr tokyo area pass

JR Tokyo Area Pass

I currently live in Gunma, near Takasaki. I noticed that the Tokyo Area Pass is only available in the Tokyo area, or up in Mito. Is there a possibility to have the Tokyo Area Pass purchased in Takasaki?

It's kind of harsh to have to pay for transport to any of the places where the Tokyo Area Pass is sold when it's over 3000 yen to and from the area just to get a pass.

Thanks in advance.


Hi there,

I looked at stations it is sold at but I could not find a place closer than Mito. Looks like this would be your best option for getting the area pass.

Sorry, I don't have better news.
