Hello Everyone!! It's time to continue for my travel itinerary and plan related post. Since I received lots of questions about the JR Pass, I guess why not I blog about it so I can share the useful information to all of you. So first of all, let's throwback to the early of April this year!! Yes, I went to Japan for my OSAKA > KYOTO > TOKYO trip.
I'm quite familiar with Tokyo but during that time it was my first time going to both Osaka and Kyoto. And now, it's my 3rd time in Osaka & Kyoto. So I decided to conclude all my 3 trips into 1 (YES 3-IN-1) for all of you. Those are from my personal experience and opinion. You can read this before planning your trip too. Hope it's helpful. Are you ready? LET'S GET STARTED!
What I received
Some information about how to exchange for the JR pass , Where and When.
The JR Pass Guide
Since I touched down at Narita airport (Tokyo) I need to exchange my JR pass there and bring all related document along with me too. Then, I need to take N'EX (Narita Express) from Narita airport (time taken 1 hours+) and change to Shinkansen bullet train.
JR service center to exchange for my JR Pass
Take your passport and exchange order document with you
Show them your passport and the exchange the ticket at the counter & last but not least remember make your seat reservation for Shinkansen Bullet Train . They will show you the time table of Shinkansen and will give you some good advice too.
Information corner for you to take note or refer to
In my plan I should be in Osaka at least 5 pm but ended up I reached my Osaka homestay at 10.45pm. I almost want to hug my friend and cry that we finally able to make it there. lol
Finally we get our JR Pass! It's like a card booklet :D
Happy kids after get our JR Pass
Take N'EX (Narita Express) to Shinagawa first then only take Shinkansen Bullet Train to Osaka
In my case, it's from Narita Airport (take N'EX) > Shinagawa (take Shinkansen bullet train) > OSAKA
This is the Ekiben I ordered during my ride to Osaka. It's 980 yen only!! It's just RM34 that time but due to our poor currency it's almost RM40 ( 100 yen = RM4.01)! Super good and super full after finished my ekiben!
Snacks for us!
Japanese meal! I TELL YOU THIS TOTALLY TASTE LIKE A restaurant food than a flight meal!!
