questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

middle name missing hyphen

Middle name missing hyphen

Hi,

I just purchased a JR pass and realized that my middle name is missing a hyphen. Will this be a problem, as my middle name on my passport contains a hyphen? All of the names (first, middle, and last) are otherwise spelled correctly.

Hi there,

This won't be a problem. The JR Pass is valid both with special letters and standardised letters.

Kind regards,
Daniel
