Rail pass with work visa

I will be entering Japan in June with a one year work visa. Am I still eligible to use the Japan Rail pass?


Hi there,

I'm afraid that the Japan Rail Pass can only be used by holders of a "Temporary Visitor" visa (usually issued to tourists for a maximum of 90 days) and is unable to be used by holders of working visas.

You can find out more about the visa requirements for Japan Rail Pass holders here.
