Japan Bus Pass- an alternative to the JR Pass

Jump to last reply

Willer Express are introducing a bus pass similar to some of the regional Japan Rail passes, which allows travel throughout Japan by using a three or five day pass. The bus can be used non-consecutively. This means you can use the pass one day, and not need to use it again until you decide to travel again, which could be one day later or ten. The pass must be purchased outside of Japan, but can be used by both non-residents and residents, and is valid to up to two months after the date of purchase.

The pass can be used twice a day, but not between two locations (ie., no round trips.) Trips must be reserved up to one hour before travel, and can be done online. Overnight travel that begins after midnight are counted as part of the previous day's travel. Photo ID must be produced before boarding.

3 day pass - 8,000 yen
5 day pass - 10,000 yen

Japan Bus Passes must be purchased on the Willer Express website.
