Japan's Theme Parks Journal With JR Pass

Hi there! Our client, John shared his experience with JR Pass last November. John loves theme parks and video games. The purpose of this 7 days Japan trip was to visit Japanese theme parks and meet friends in Japan. Since hotels were more economical for long-term stays, he booked a hotel in Tokyo for 7 days. Also, he purchased an ordinary 7 days JR Pass.

A word from John:

With JR Pass, I was able to explore various areas in every direction with big discounts! Since my travel time was limited, I didn't have to buy tickets at stations every time so JR Pass could save my time and money a lot.

How to buy the JR Pass?

You can purchase the JR Pass tickets with Amnet before coming to Japan!

After arrival in Japan, exchange the voucher for an actual pass at the selected ticketing office of the JR station.
