Hi I am a Canadian going to Japan in Dec. I have a few questions.

Does anyone know where I can buy a JR pass in Canada?

Am I able to use my Interac card in the Atm's ?

And Finally, does anyone know of a website that I can book hotels from in Canadian dollars ? (other then Japanican)

Any suggestions would be appreciated thak you.

Most travel agencies should be able to do so, especially the ones specialized in Japan. Or check the listings here:

I don't think so, unless the card also belongs to one of the other networks mentioned on the following page:

I live in Canada and get my JR pass at any JTB agency. just google JTB t ofind adresses in Canada. I use my bank card (Cirrus/ Plus networks) to get cash from ATMs in Japan just like in Canada. I also use credit cards to pay for bigger expenses (hotels for example). it works fine.

JR pass and ATM 2007/10/8 04:58
You can use your interac cards at all the post office's ATM machine which can be found everywhere. You can buy the JR pass in JTB if you are in Toronto on Yonge St. The web address is www.jtbi.ca If you are elsewhere, just go to a flight center or something. I bought mine in a Korean Travel Agency since I live near Korean Town and I have friends there.
