questions & answers: using the japan rail pass



Good morning, We have a 7 day pass and won't be arriving until May 15. Can we pre-book the trains we will be taking?


Hi there,

You can book your train tickets the moment that you are in Japan and have exchanged your JR Pass.

Don't worry too much about seats filling up, there are a lot available and it is rare to see a train completely sold out.
