My passport for Mac

I have a My passport 1TB HDD for Mac in which i have a lot of data. 2 days back i sold my Macbook Pro and might take a month before i buy a Macbook Air. Basically i want to know if there is any chance for me to access the HDD on my Windows 8 laptop and access the data? The current partition of the HDD is EFI and it doesnt show up in Windows explorer. I am not sure if this has been asked previously but since am new here forgive me if this is a repeated question.

The file system used for Mac-ready hard drives is HFS+, which is not supported by Microsoft Windows. However, there third party tools available over the Internet designed to allow access.
