When I was planning my trip I spent a lot of my time looking for discounts and passes for the cities I was staying in. It saved me money in the long run because I didn’t need to buy a 21 day Japan Rail Pass, I only needed a 14 day one for a 3-week trip! I also used the discounts to get either free or discount entry to places like Osaka’s Umeda Sky Building, Kaiyu Aquarium, Osaka Castle, Kobe’s Nunobiki Herb Garden, Hirosaki Castle and more.
My Discounts and Passes for Japan 2018 Guidebook includes discounts to the following cities:
- Mount Fuji
If you’re anything like me you want to make your yen go further and have the best holiday possible. Budgeting for your trip is so important because you can ensure you don’t overspend or under save.
I see online a lot of people asking whether they need a Japan Rail Pass and the best thing you can do is compare a Japan Rail Pass vs the discounts and passes I’ve found. There is no need to pay full price for most of the attractions in Japan and many passes offer you unlimited transport!
I want to help all my Japlanners out there who are going in 2018 with this complete guide for ALL the Discounts and Passes in Japan. I’ve scoured the internet and collated every single discount and pass I could find and have made a nifty little guidebook for you.
Please note: You will receive the guidebook via email. Please confirm your email and then it will auto send the PDF guidebook through.
I hope you enjoy the guidebook! Please let me know if you’ve discovered any tourist discounts for Japan and I can add them to the book.
Please note: Some discounts and passes may change/expire over time. If you notice a pass has expired, directly contact the attraction/sight to see if they will take expired coupons. Trust me this works! I had passes for Kobe that expired two weeks before my trip. I contacted the Kobe Tourism website to see if they were releasing new ones. They said they were in the transition of updating the passes but all the attractions would take the expired pass. Remember to always check first.
