For many foreign tourists, Japan Rail Pass is a must buy when they are planning to travel throughout Japan by JR railways.

You need to purchase an exchange order before you come to Japan. After you arrive in Japan, you need to show your passport and the exchange order to exchange(activate) for the real Japan Rail Pass.

There are exchange offices in the main JR stations and airports. Here we introduce the exchange offices located in the airports of Japan. You can exchange for the pass upon your arrival at the airport, which makes it possible for you to start using it when you leave the airport.*
