JR Pass(Japan Rail Pass) | Comparing JR Pass VS No JR Pass for Your Japan Adventure
The JR Pass(Japan Rail Pass) is a popular railway ticket exclusively for overseas visitors to Japan. It cannot be purchased by residents of Japan. The popularity of the pass owes to the fact that with the exception of some Shinkansen trains, notably the Nozomi and Mizuho services, it can be conveniently used for unlimited travel on all JR lines.
Unfortunately, however, JR Pass prices are slated for a sharp increase in October 2023.(Unit: JPY)
