      Hi, when you purchase a Japan Rail Pass, you receive a voucher that must be exchanged in Japan in order to receive the actual pass. The voucher must be exchanged within three months of the date of purchase. However, you have 1 year to return an unused voucher for a refund. There is no refund once the voucher has been exchanged for the rail pass.
