Purchasing JR Pass ticket

Hello, I wanted to know. is it possible to purchase JR Pass ticket outside from Japan but deliver it inside Japan?

I am right now in Japan and sadly didn't know before there were such tickets and that's why if I asked to my friend to buy them from other country could you deliver them to me in Japan?


Hi there,

It may be possible but JR is very strict about about only selling the pass abroad. Please contact us directly at so we can discuss option with you personally.

Do note that shipping to Japan takes 3 working days, so I hope you have enough time to enjoy it!

I hope this helps,
