I heard that there's a website somewhere out there you can get a Japan Rail Pass after you've entered the country but I've had no luck finding it -- any clues?

Strange, thought you HAD to buy an exhcange order abroad before actually obtaining the pass: http://www.japanrailpass.net/eng/en005.html

I believe that there are 2 legal places in japan that you can buy it wiuthout the exchange order, but no idea where they are. I would guess that possibly one would be in Narita, but that is a blind guess at best.
