Key Information

Important Information

• The JR All Shikoku Rail Pass is only valid for those holding non-Japanese passports and with a Temporary Visitor visa under the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act. Foreign residents in Japan, whether working, participating in a study-abroad program, or such, are not eligible for this pass. Anyone ineligible who is found using this pass will be fined for misuse. If you are a non-Japanese residing in Japan, please purchase the JR Shikoku 3-Day Pass instead (available from May 1–September 30, 2022) • Please note that this pass is different from the JR Shikoku 3-Day Pass, which can also be used by foreign residents in Japan but has a more limited railway coverage area. You can book this pass here: https://experiences.travel.rakuten.com/experiences/24058 • Your e-ticket only serves as an exchange order; it is not the JR All Shikoku Rail Pass itself • Children ages 0–5 may travel with their companions for free, but they must sit on a parent or guardian's lap. If they will require a seat of their own, please purchase a child-priced ticket • This pass is non-transferrable; it can only be used by the person whose name is printed on the special pass case. You will be asked to present your passport to prove your identity, so please carry it around with you at all times • Please be careful with your pass; in the event of loss, damage, or theft, it cannot be reissued • Even in the event of service suspensions, delays, or cancellations, you will not be eligible for a refund or extension of the validity period once you have started using your JR All Shikoku Rail Pass • This Pass is only valid for non-reserved seats, but if you wish to upgrade to reserved seating (available only on selected trains), you can purchase a booklet of 4 reserved-seating tickets at a discount at the redemption location for your JR All Shikoku Rail Pass (except Kotohira Station Information Counter and Nippon Travel Agency's TiS Okayama branch). These tickets can be shared among your companions • Certain segments of some railway routes are not part of the JR All Shikoku Rail Pass's coverage area; please see the Description section for details. In such cases, you will have to pay extra fees for the segments not covered
