Qualifications for using Japan Rail Pass

Tourists with foreign nationality who have a temporary visitor visa of up to ninety days are subject to the pass. Please confirm the information below for details.

Qualifications for use:
Foreign travelers who are visiting Japan from another country for the purpose of sightseeing, under the entry status of “temporary visitor”

Under the “temporary visitor” residence status that is stipulated in Japan’s immigration laws, a stay for the purpose of sightseeing will be allowed for a 15-day period or a 90-day period. If you want to stay for the purpose of sightseeing when you enter Japan, an immigration officer will affix to your passport a stamp or seal as the “temporary visitor” stated below.

Only people who have received a “temporary visitor” stamp or seal on their passport can claim or use the Japan Rail Pass.

* If you use an automated gate, a stamp or seal will not be affixed to your passport, so please either use a manned automated gate or tell a staff member and then receive a stamp or seal.

* In the event that a person who has a passport from a visa-waiver country stipulated by Japan’s Immigration Bureau will enter Japan as a temporary visitor, a temporary visitor stamp will be affixed. People who have another nationality will be required to apply for a visa before entering Japan.

If you do not have a status of residence as a “temporary visitor,” you will not be able to claim a Japan Rail Pass even if you have an exchange ticket.

This qualification for use will be applied to all passengers who use a JR pass, so please submit an order after being sure to confirm that all of the Users have qualifications for use. Passengers who do not conform to the use qualification requirements cannot claim or use a JR pass in Japan.

Please note that in the event that a claim cannot be made because the aforementioned qualifications for use are not fulfilled, a refund will be made as handling of a return.

* If Japan Rail Pass cannot be used
If you do not have the status of residence of a temporary visitor, even if you purchase an exchange ticket, it will not be possible to exchange it for a Japan Rail Pass within Japan.

The following are the main examples where the Japan Rail Pass cannot be used.

Student visa
Entertainer visa

Prices and taxes

Prices are stated in Japanese yen (JPY). Reference prices are stated in the local currency, but the Company is not liable for updating foreign exchange rates in real time.

Ordinarily, prices include taxes and service charges, but, depending on the product and dispatch method that are selected, there are cases in which there will be separate handling service charges and dispatch charges.

Payment

The methods of payment are by credit card or debit card only.

You can use settlement by credit card that has a “Visa” or “MasterCard” mark. When making payment with a card, it will be necessary to enter the card member number (card number), the name of the card account holder, the card security number, and the card expiration date.

We have commissioned Paygent Co., Ltd., as the settlement clearing company. Paygent’s system is used for settlement, and therefore thorough security measures are taken through SSL encrypted communication for all settlement screens.

The amount will be charged not at the time of online purchase, but rather at the time of completion of dispatch. Only credit confirmation (authorization) will be conducted at the time of purchase.

In the event that payment is not completed because of an inappropriate payment, an agreement will not be concluded. If card payment failed, please confirm the validity of the card company’s card. The Company will not, in any case, bear any liability whatsoever for things caused by payment failure. The Company will retain the right to claim compensation from customers for damage caused by the input of false card information or conducting other actions that the Company deems inappropriate.

The Company will not bear liability related to service charges or expenses imposed on the Users by banks, credit card companies, or debit card companies. This includes international transactions and exchange service charges.

Delivery

After an order has been accepted, Giamso International Tours Pte Ltd., which is the Company’s local company in Singapore, will dispatch the product. Dispatch will be conducted within one or two business days, but there may be cases that require more or less time.

Delivery work has been commissioned to FedEx Corporation; therefore, FedEx’s international service terms will apply correspondingly after dispatch. At the time of product dispatch, we will provide the customer with information that makes it possible to track FedEx’s delivery situation.

For shipping costs and the approximate number of days for delivery, please check here or the information that is displayed at the time the order is made.

Ordinarily, delivery will be made within the period of the approximate number of days for delivery after dispatch, but in the event that delivery was not made within the period of the approximate number of days for delivery because of a reason not attributable to the Company, such as customs clearance, a holiday, or a problem with means of transportation, the Company will not bear liability.

The approximate number of days for delivery is not a contractual obligation, and it does not guarantee delivery within the approximate delivery period. The Company will not bear any liability whatsoever for expenses, lost profits, or any other losses in the event that delivery was late or in the event that the customer gave insufficient information for an order. We will not accept refusal of acceptance or agreement cancellation due to the fact that delivery was not made within the approximate delivery period. Please be sure to allow leeway in the period.

An ordered product will be delivered to the address that the customer entered in the order form. Please note that the Company cannot bear liability for loss or damage to products in the event that the customer made a mistake when entering an address.

In addition, in the event that you want re-delivery of a product that was returned to the Company, we will charge you additional delivery charges.

We do not accept refusal to accept or agreement cancellation after dispatch. Please note that it will be handled as a cancellation or return.

Cancellations and returns

In principle, after product dispatch, we will not accept cancellation or returns due to the customers’ circumstances. If you want to cancel or return the product for any reason, if it is within thirty days after receiving the product, please first contact us by using the inquiry form on this page. Please note that in some cases we cannot accept returns of products about which we were not contacted.

Please note that we will charge 10% of the purchase price as a service charge for a cancellation or return, JPY 3,000 for clerical service charges, and shipping (actual expenses). A refund will be handled through the credit card that was used for settlement, using the amount that results from subtracting the aforementioned service charge for a cancellation or return from the purchase price.

In the case of a return after receiving a product, please return the envelope that the Company sent along with the purchased product, so that the Company can see that the Company sent it to you. The customer will bear the shipping that is charged when returning the product to the Company.

In the event that a product was returned to the place of dispatch without being received in the time up to the period of receiving the product, we will handle it as a return.

We will accept cancellation or returns only for products that are unused and unopened. Please note that we cannot accept cancellations or returns for used products or products for which the packaging completed by the manufacturer has been opened or damaged.

Please note in advance that approximately ninety days will be required for handling refunds after cancellation or acceptance of a return.
