Hey

I'm traveling to Tokyo on March 19th from the states. I'm wondering what's the best rail pass solutin? I am in Tokyo March 19-22 and then traveling to Osaka on 23 and coming back on the 24th. My main concern is getting to/from airport and then getting around without having too many passes. Also I think I'm past the deadline to get the JR pass in the mail. I know there is an option to get it sent to the hotel in staying at but then how do I get it in order to use to get from the airport. Let me know. Thanks

Hello there,

It depends a little of where you live but we may still be able to deliver in time. Send us your address within the next couple of hours via support@jrpass.com and we can check before our daily dispatch.

A 7 day JR Pass could be recommend for the trip Tokyo - Osaka - Tokyo, additionally the JR Pass can also be used for travel from the Airport.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Daniel-

Thanks for the reply. Two questions

  1. What if it doesn't make it in time? What are my options
  2. If I get the rail pass can I get around the local subways with the JR Pass?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
