Japan Expressway Pass ジャパン・エキスプレスウェイ・パス
The Japan Expressway Pass for foreign visitors can be purchased at car rental offices and works on the ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) system. Like the Japan Rail Pass for train users, this pass makes for substantial savings for foreign visitors planning to rent a car and drive in Japan.
The pass costs 20,000 yen for 7 days or 34,000 for 14 days. The pass is available for holders of passports of nations other than Japan and for Japanese permanent residents of other nations. A driving license valid for driving in Japan is also necessary.
* The Japan Expressway Pass pass cannot be used for expressways in Hokkaido, Sky Gate Bridge tolls (100 yen per round trip), Kanmon Tunnel, Daini Shinmei Road, Shuto Expressway, Hanshin Expressway, or expressways operated by the Honshu-Shikoku Bridge Expressway Co. or expressway public corporations.
However, it can be used on the Sanriku Expressway (Sendai-Matsushima Road), Kyoto Jukan Expressway and Bantan Road, operated by expressway public corporations.
