The Rail Pass
Travel in Japan
Does it matter if the last name stands first on the JRP and then the first name?
About the Rail Pass
i was asked to write first my surname and then my first name. on the pass it is also like this. will there be any problems with the order of the name?
* when I exchange the document to the real pass
Your name being printed with your surname first followed by your first name is absolutely fine and will not be a problem in Japan. It's actually the Japanese way to write names surname first.
But really, as long as the names are spelled correctly and match those in your passport, the name order does not really matter. Please rest assured that your voucher will be considered valid and will be accepted by JR staff in Japan with no issues as long as the first and surnames on the voucher are the same as those in your passport.
