To be honest, I didn’t know that the FLEX Rail-ticket even existed. This service is provided by JR Tokai Tours. JR Tokai covers many prefectures such as Shizuoka, Ibaraki, Osaka, Hyogo etc. The discount ticket service is only for the Tokaido Shinkansen (東海道新幹線/とうかいどうしんかんせん), so can only be used for certain stations between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka. The great part is that it’s not only for foreign tourists but also foreign people who live in Japan – though the discount can only be used by the passport holder and not on tickets purchased for others.

Flex rail-ticket

This package includes a Shinkansen round-trip ticket and special vouchers for food or experiences like kimono rental. All you have to do to make use of this deal is to show your passport when you purchase the ticket. Make sure everyone travelling has their passport at purchase, as tickets can only be purchased by the passport holder. There is no minimum number of tickets that you have to buy, so it's great for everyone: solo travellers, couples, groups etc.
It doesn't have to be a day trip ticket either, your return date can be between 1-7 days, so there's a lot of flexibility!

Deal is valid from 25th September, 2019 to 25th March, 2020.
