For the international adventurer looking to explore all facets of Japan, be it serene beaches, majestic mountains, or the bustle of its metropolises, travel to all of these places has gotten even more accessible than ever. Japan-rail-pass.com, a branch of the travel company Japan Experience, has recently unveiled its Portuguese version as the website’s 7th language. Using the address Japan-rail-pass.pt, rail passes for unlimited travel across the four main islands of Japan are now available to Portuguese speakers worldwide.
The Japan Rail Pass is offered by the national Japan Railways company in 7-, 14-, or 21-day passes valid on JR lines across the country, including Japan’s famous shinkansen bullet trains. These passes do away with the need for purchasing tickets for each and every train ride, and instead pass holders can show the pass at ticket gates and go through. More recently, new regional passes give overseas travelers the option to better customize and budget their tours of Japan. These passes range from 2- to 8-day and cover regions such as Hokkaido in the north, Kyushu, in the south, and the Kansai area, including cities such as Kyoto.
Visitors to Japan Experience’s latest website are also encouraged to take advantage of the website’s detailed travel information. “We are committed to providing travelers planning their trip Japan with as many resources as possible,” said Claude Sauliere, CEO of Japan Experience. “Train travel is an integral part of this experience now.” Travel information on Japan-Rail-Pass.pt includes articles about Japan’s newest and most exciting trains, as well as expert tips on what to see and where to go on them. The website is also expanding to provide train itineraries and information on the stops on these journeys. Its JR Pass guides cover every aspect of traveling using a rail pass, including emergency info, how and where to exchange the passes, and even transporting your luggage during your journey, all offered in Portuguese.
The passes, which originate from the website’s Europe office, ship quickly and directly to any country, be it Portugal, Brazil, or even your accommodations in Japan. The website provides shipping estimates for any country and free shipping for any order of two or more passes.
