Visa for Business reason

about 1 year ago
1 response

As I'm from Germany I wouldn't need a Visa for travelling to Japan. Due to the Covid situation we also have to apply for a visa and need a reason for that. As I'm going to Japan for business reasons I requested the visa for that.
Now I have a visa sticker in my passport with "category (V) as temporary visitor" and single entry.
Does this fulfill the requirement for buying a Japan rail pass, as it isn't for touristic reasons? Or do I need something special to get this stamp when entering Japan?
Thanks in advance
