Ordering JR Pass: Question regarding nationality

Hi I'm from Puerto Rico and I'd like to order a JR Pass. The site asks for the nationality but my passport says that my nationality is from the United States, not Puerto Rico.

Which country should I put in as nationality?

Hi there,

It does not really matter, as long as you enter Japan using a temporary visitor visa. For the rest, we don't really care about your nationality, other than for stats.

You could thus select the U.S. without any issue.

Kind regards,
