purchasing the jr pass from beijing, china

Purchasing the JR Pass from Beijing, China


I want to purchase a JR pass and I live in Beijing, China. When placing an order for the pass it does not give me an option to write my address in Chinese characters.

Does my Beijing address need to be in Chinese characters in order for the delivery to be made? Or would English be sufficient enough? For other online orders I've made, my delivery address has to be written in Chinese characters for it to be delivered by the local post services.

If anyone can help me out or if you've come across a similar problem, please let me know. I would really appreciate it :)

Thank you for your time,


Hi Vitra,

Generally writing your address in English is sufficient. However feel free to contact us at with your Address in Chinese. This way we can use both :)

Let me know if there's anything I can help with,
