Often shortened to JR Pass, the Japan Rail Pass is a transportation pass that’s designed specifically for visitors to Japan. It allows users to travel on the JR's trains (including Shinkansen services), buses, and ferries within the designated validity period.

Until now, it’s been necessary to purchase a JR Pass voucher overseas from a designated agent, then exchange it for the actual pass after arriving in Japan. But beginning in June 2020, an online sales service will begin to make the purchase process more convenient and allow users to make seat reservations online.
