JAPAN RAIL PASS, a joint offering of the six companies comprising the Japan Railways Group (JR Group), is the most economical means of traveling throughout Japan by rail.
JR has three types of Shinkansen (bullet train) services, “NOZOMI”, “HIKARI”, and “KODAMA”. “NOZOMI” is the fastest, “HIKARI” is faster and “KODAMA” is fast which stops all stations.
There are some restrictions on use; for example, JAPAN RAIL PASS cannot be used for travel on “NOZOMI” and “MIZUHO” trains on the Tokaido, Sanyo, and Kyushu Shinkansen lines.
There are two types of JAPAN RAIL PASS: Green (for superior-class Green cars), and Ordinary. Each of these types is available as a 7-day, 14-day, or 21-day PASS.
For example, prices of Exchange Orders of 7-days PASS are 39,600 Yen for Green cars and 29,650 Yen for Ordinary cars.
