Save lots of money by buying this JR Rail Pass! Japan is a country in which the railway system is developed to such an advanced level, it’s possibly the most convenient and efficient way to travel in Japan. However, if you’re travelling to many places and moving long distances, it can get quite pricy. Which is why you should buy the JR Rail Pass. The JR Rail Pass is only available to foreigners. JR offers this pass to foreigners for such a cheap price, it makes us Japanese locals a little jealous. In most countries, they like to raise prices for tourists, and give discounts to locals, but this JR Rail Pass is the complete opposite. So if you’re a foreign tourist traveling to many places in Japan, it would be unwise not to buy it.
*You cannot buy the JR Rail Pass once you are in Japan, you have to buy it in your country, bring the necessary documents, and exchange it for a JR Rail Pass once you are in Japan. *JR is the biggest rail company in Japan, but there are many other rail companies such as Hanshin, Hankyu, Sanyo, and the Subway (which is usually owned by the government). You can only use the JR pass for JR trains.
