New Three-Day Unlimited Japan Railway (JR) Pass for Tokyo and East Japan

Thinking of hopping around stations in Tokyo and east Japan? For a limited time, JR is selling three-day unlimited train passes to satisfy your wanderlust. Get the most out of your time in Japan by using the JR East 30th Anniversary Pass to fulfill your travel checklist!

JR East 30th Anniversary Pass

In commemoration of JR’s 30th anniversary, the company has released a pass that allows unlimited access to both regular and rapid trains in three railroad companies: Japan Railways East network, Aoimori railroads, and IGR Iwate Ginga railroads. Travelers are welcome to board trains and venture out from urban Tokyo to prefectures such as Aomori, which would typically cost around 17,000 yen (one-way), for the price of 13,000 yen (adult price). With the JR East 3oth Anniversary pass, Tohoku regions aside from Hokkaido become cheaper and easier to visit.

As shown in the table, the new three-day pass is 7,000 yen cheaper (adult price) than the JR East pass that is already on the market. The new pass also offers coverage of select railroad lines other than JR, whereas the JR East Pass is only effective on JR train routes.
