Back to Using the Japan Rail Pass

Narita Airport Express and Supplementary Charges

over 1 year ago
1 response

I understand that when I arrive at Narita airport, I use my JP Rail exchange voucher to get my JP Rail Pass. Though my JP pass would permit me use of the Narita express to Tokyo station, to use this train reservations are mandatory. Can I reserve at the point of collecting my JP a Rail pass and receive immediate reservation? How else would the use of the Narita express work?

Also, I have read with an 'ordinary' pass this only covers the basic fare, and whilst use of the express, rapid and bullet trains is valid using the JP Rail pass, am I required to key a supplementary fee to use these services?

Thank you
