You must be a "temporary visitor" in Japan in order to get Japan Rail Pass or Regional Pass. Your status as a temporary visitor needs to be proven by showing the immigration stamp on your passport to the officer upon exchanging the pass.
It is only the "temporary visitor" status holders that can exchange their exchange order to the pass. Other statuses, such as Trainee, Entertainer or Reentry Permit, are not accepted for the pass exchange, even if you visit Japan with an Exchange Order. According to the Japanese Immigration Law, the temporary visitor status is different from other statuses, however short the visit may be."Temporary Visitor" entry status allows a stay in Japan of 15 days or 90 days for "sight-seeing, etc."
