Condition 1.
You are a foreign tourist visiting Japan from

"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 "temporary visitor". Only persons who have a passport bearing this stamp can use a JR Pass.
* If you hold both a Japanese passport and a passport of another country (Dual Citizenship), please be sure to enter Japan with the non-Japanese passport and obtain the "temporary visitor" stamp to be eligible to exchange.


Even if you visit Japan with an Exchange Order, to be turned in for a JR
Pass, the exchange cannot be made unless you have "temporary
visitor" status; if you enter Japan under any other official status, such
as "trainee" or "entertainer", you can not change the Exchange
Order for a JR 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.
When you exchange to JR Pass, you must submit the original Exchange Order. A copy is not acceptable.

I agree to the Purchase conditions of
the above pass, continue to order.
