Japan Rail Pass
Travel Made Easy

Regional Rail Passes

JR West Sanyo Pass
The JR West 'Sanyo' area Pass is valid for travel on the Sanyo Shinkansen Line from Osaka to Fukuoka and the local JR services which connect with that line. Has the bonus of being the only rail pass which can be used to travel on both the Nozomi Shinkansen - the flagship of JR's fantastic fleet, and the new Mizuho service.  Also running on the Sanyo Line is the luxury 'Rail Star', an 8 carriage Shinkansen where all the seats are of a first class standard. 4 day and 8 day passes are available.

JR Kyushu Pass
Available for 5 or 7 day periods, this pass will give you ample time to explore the hot springs, bubbling volcanos and stunning beaches of Kyushu.

JR Hokkaido Pass
A choice of 3 of pass to help you explore the amazing outdoor wilderness of Japan’s huge northern island, a place missed by most foreign visitors to Japan!

Please contact us if you wish to purchase one of these regional passes, you cannot order them from this website. Please note that if you wish to visit both Tokyo and Kyoto (as most visitors do!) there is no regional pass that will cover both destinations, so it is the main Japan Rail Pass that you will require. The various Japan Rail Passes can offer excellent value for money and convenience. However, they are not always the best way to organize your trip. Get in touch and we will be more than happy to give advice on all aspects of your trip to Japan.
