Japan Subway Passes

When I first planned my trip to Japan, everyone kept telling me it was a very expensive country. After booking my roundtrip on delta non-stop flight in July 2016, I decided to do research of how much transportation would cost.

IN ORDER TO GET THESE PASSES YOU MUST BE A TOURIST ON VACATION. YOU MUST BRING YOUR PASSPORT TO EVERY LOCATION IN ORDER TO BUY THESE TICKETS

If you are looking to ride the shinkansen or the bullet train, the JR Pass is worth your money. But be warned JR Pass is about $265 for 7 days, $422 for 14 days and $539 for 21 days. If you are traveling throughout Japan on the bullet train, JR Pass is worth the money since bullet train ride one way is about $120. JR Pass are the only ones that have to be ordered about one month in an advance. You buy them online and the documentation and receipt will arrive in the mail about a week before your trip to Japan.

JR also has region passes for a discounted priced but I feel mainly tokyo has JR Stations compared to other cities, the subways are run by other companies.
