questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

mr after my husband's name and mrs. after my name

Mr after my husband's name and Mrs. after my name

Hi, on my rail pass they have the proper spelling of my name which matches my passport but they wrote Mrs at the end of my name. The Mrs is not on my passport. For my husband they put Mr after his name, which isn't on his passport. Is this Ok?


Hi there,

Yes that is fine, it is only to indicate the right gender. This may be noted differently in your passport, such as (male/female).

Hope this helps!
