Your Ticket to Ride in Japan - JAPAN RAIL PASS -

Navigating public transport in a foreign country can be overwhelming. In Japan, there’s also the challenge of purchasing the right ticket every time you ride one of the inter-city bullet or express trains, urban railway networks, or bus services. That’s where the Japan Rail Pass comes in handy.
The Japan Rail Pass is a special ticket offered by the JR Group to visitors from overseas, allowing unlimited travel on the JR Group’s railways and local buses for 7, 14 or 21 days. It’s exceptional value if you’re planning to travel between multiple cities such as Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima and Tokyo.

The inter-city bullet trains: Shinkansen

Shinkansen is Japan’s high-speed railway network that grants excellent access to Kyoto from major cities. For example, Shinkansen’s Hikari train takes travelers from Tokyo to Kyoto in less than three hours. The Japan Rail Pass covers charges for Shinkansen trains except the Nozomi and Mizuho trains.  
 
See the JR Group official website for services and routes covered by the Japan Rail Pass.

Who is eligible to use the Japan Rail Pass?

Foreign tourists visiting Japan from abroad for sightseeing as a “temporary visitor”

If you’re visiting Japan for the purpose of sightseeing, you will receive a “temporary visitor” stamp or sticker (such as pictured below) in your passport on entry to the country. Foreign visitors wishing to use the Japan Rail Pass must have this stamp or sticker in their passport. Note that visitors with any other entry status (including business, study or diplomatic purposes) are not eligible to use the Japan Rail Pass. 
 

Japanese citizens residing in another country who have a Japanese passport and written proof from an embassy or legation of Japan that they have been living in that country for ten consecutive years or more
