Too late to buy JR Pass?


I am leaving for Japan on the morning of May 31. If I purchase the JR Pass today, will it arrive too late for me to use it? I live in California in the United States. Is it possible for me to buy the JR Pass then have it sent to a post office or address in Japan to pick up the voucher?


Hi there,

Yes, I am afraid that the first dispatch will be on May 31st due to public holidays. We can however ship the JR Pass to your accommodation in Japan.

If you wish to make use of this, simply put in your accommodation at the check-out process.

Hope this helps,
