This website shows you how to use Japan Rail Pass. But some of visitors have a plan to buy a single ticket. Even Japan Rail Pass user need to pay a single fare when they want to save the pass. So I would like to share the useful links and the information with you.

JR’s rule on passenger’s ticket

JR fare rule is so difficult to understand for the tourists from overseas. Even some travel agents in Japan do not understand this rule completely.

I show you other simple fare tables below. But these fare tables show you a simple round trip or one way trip only. If you need to calculate for multi-city itinerary, you need to understand JR rules. I wrote about fare rule very simply at the post, For non JR pass travellers. Guide to use JR single ticket, basic rules, validity and stopover. You can get an information about purchasing and using single ticket.

    1. Hi Cheryl,

      You can take Keikyu train from Haneda to Shinagawa. And then you can catch Shinkansen. Please see the links below:

      If you need a return ticket for Haneda to Universal city only, you can purchase a regular ticket. If you have any other trips beside this return trip, JR pass 7 days will be cheaper.
