WHAT'S A JR PASS?

The Japan Rail Pass (also commonly called JR Pass) is a very cost effective rail pass for long distance train travel in Japan. It can be used by foreign tourists only, and offers unlimited use of JR trains for one, two or three weeks at a cost that residents of Japan can only dream of.

The Japan Rail Pass must be purchased before your arrival to Japan, because it is not available for sale inside Japan. The pass comes in two types: ordinary and green car. The latter is valid on green cars (first class cars) that offer more spacious seats than ordinary cars.

WHY TAKE A JR PASS?

Travelling to Japan isn’t cheap as the transportation fee takes up a big parentage of the total expenses.
Because Japan’s land shape is long and thin, normal ticket costs JPY 28,900 (Approx S$250) even if you travel from Tokyo to Osaka. And the JR Pass Ordinary for 7days only cost JPY 29,110.

So it is better to purchase a rail pass to travel around Japan.
