Excellent for travel around Japan. Would be optimal if the pass also supported subway in large cities as Tokyo.
Despite the overwhelming anxiety I had when it came to travelling overseas for the first time by myself, the Japan RailPass helped me get around Tokyo easily and enjoy myself! (I would definitely recommend getting the Pocket Wifi as well!)
Your staff treated us with respect from beginning to end and explained things that we didn't understand. It was a pleasure to work with them. The use of the JR pass made use of the rail system easy and seamless.
It's a mm amazing pass but I think you should have also a pass for 9 days or a way to add more days of journey if we like in the pass , because I would lovecto visit more places but I bought the seven days pass because 14 it was more days that I need it but the rest was perfect!!!
Shinkansen was a fantastic service - punctual, clean, comfortable. Much easier and better than flying. I wish we had them in New Zealand!
Every time my partner and I travel to Japan, we purchase JR Rail Pass. Without doubt, it is the most economical, efficient and pleasant way to travel within Japan. We have hardly any complaints. In the busy and complex Tokyo Station (particularly in the Yaesu-guchi side), we found signs to locate and guide us to the Narita Express to be inadequate. Only when one approaches its tracks, these signs are easy to spot.
The JR Rail Pass was a must for our 16 Day trip! We did wish that it covered the Nozumi Shinkansen as we accidentally boarded this line twice (Google Maps doesn't seem to want to locate the Sakura line).
Other than that I will definitely be using the JR Pass on my next trip.

Dear customer, thank you very much for sharing your feedback. When you want to check timetables and routes included in the Japan Rail Pass it is better to check Hyperdia. In our website we have a very complete guide on how to use it: www.jrailpass.com/hyperdia. We hope you find it useful :)
Great resource, we unfortunately only had time to go to round trip from Tokyo > Kyoto.
We were traveling on NYE which we were advised would be a mad house and no reservations. We weren't able to get a reservation, but we did get seats on a 7:30 am train and it was totally fine.
