Visiting Tokyo

I have a British Citizen passport and I am visiting Japan (Tokyo/Osaka/Hiroshima/Fujikyu and Fukuoka) during the Christmas Holiday. And I am going to have a long layover in Beijing, China for 23 hours and 55 minutes. Do I need a visa for the long layover in China?

Moreover, do I need a visa if I am visiting Japan for the second time in a year? (Not exceeding 90 days limit) And would it be possible for me to use Japan rail pass again, if I am visiting Japan for the second time?

Thank you

No limit to JR pass usage.

"UK and Irish passport holders are NOT required to obtain a visa if they wish to enter Japan for the purpose of journey described above for a period of 6 months or less." www.uk.emb-japan.go.jp/en/visa/temporary.html

I was able to use two Japan Rail passes on a single trip to Japan, so it should be ok for you to get a second pass for part 2 of your visit to Japan.
