Three Japan Railway group companies said they will offer, starting April 10, five-day passes to foreign travelers good for unlimited travel in western Japan.
The pass is good for all bullet, express and local trains on Sanyo lines west of the Osaka area, all JR lines in Shikoku, and some JR lines in Kyushu. The pass won’t cover lines in some areas, such as Sanin in southwest Honshu.
A pass for an adult limiting travel to northern Kyushu will sell for ¥22,000, and ¥25,000 for a ticket valid for travel throughout Kyushu.
The pass, available at major stations of West Japan Railway Co., Shikoku Railway Co. and Kyushu Railway Co., will be available to short-term travelers with passports issued by foreign governments.
