Under 6yr child & JR Pass

Hello. We are travelling this summer w/ my children ages 5 and 6. While I was trying to purchase the pass, I noticed the age for a children's pass is from 6-11. Are there no passes for children under 6? Please advise.
thank you.


Hello there,

Children under the age of 6 at the time of travel can travel on all JR services for free provided they travel with an accompanying adult (so they will not require a ticket or rail pass). You can read more about child japan rail passes here.

Hope this helps!
