  Who can purchase the JAPAN RAIL PASS?
1. You are a foreign tourist visiting Japan from abroad for sight-seeing, under the entry status of "temporary visitor."
  Temporary Visitor entry status, according to Japanese Immigration Law, allows a stay in Japan of 15 days or 90 days for "sight-seeing, etc." If you apply for a "stay for sight-seeing" when you enter Japan, entry personnel will stamp your passport as "Temporary Visitor," as shown below. *In order to receive or use JAPAN RAIL PASS, your passport must bear this stamp or sticker.
  Examples of the "Temporary Visitor" entry status stamp
  *If you use an automated gate, no stamp will be applied to your passport. Either use a manned automated gate or ask a clerk to apply the stamp to your passport.
  Caution: Even if you visit Japan with an Exchange Order, to be turned in for a JAPAN RAIL PASS, the exchange cannot be made unless you have "Temporary Visitor" status; if you enter Japan under any other official status, such as "Trainee," "Entertainer," or "Reentry Permit," you cannot change the Exchange Order for a JAPAN RAIL PASS. Please note that according to strict interpretation of the Japanese Immigration Law, "Temporary Visitor" status differs even from other types of stays that are also for only short time periods.
  We can also arrange regional passes (JR-West, JR-Hokkaido, JR Kyushu). Price and Order Japan Regional Pass
  The JAPAN RAIL PASS is not valid for any seats, reserved or non-reserved, on "NOZOMI" trains on the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen lines. (The pass holders must take "HIKARI" or "KODAMA" trains.) If you use a "NOZOMI," you must pay the basic fare and the limited express charge, and for a Green Car the Green Car surcharge. In this case there is no discount because of JAPAN RAIL PASS.
  On arriving in Japan your JR Pass Exchange Order can be exchanged for a JR Pass at most major stations including both terminals of Tokyo Narita International Airport, International Terminal in Haneda Airport and Osaka Kansai International Airport.
  JR Pass Exchange Orders are valid for 3 months from the date of issue so we cannot issue Exchange Orders more than 3 months before the date you first want to use them.
  Due to currency fluctuations, the exchange rate is recalculated on the 1st of every month so prices can change.
  Payment by Visa, Master Card, Diners, JCB or Amex is only possble by Mail Order. There will be a 3% surcharge. Debit cards are accepted free of charge so we'd rather you used a debit card or pay cash to give you more money to spend in Japan!
  In case of cancellation 10% of the ticket price will be deduced and the issuing charge will not be reimbursed. There will also be a CHF20.- administrative costs involved.
