questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

7 days pass. can i pick up the days i'll be using the ticket?

7 days pass. can I pick up the days I'll be using the ticket?

I'm arriving in Sendai on June 7th at 5pm. And leaving from Sendai on June 19 (13 days in total).
I want to fight from Tokyo (Narita) to China late night on June 7th and be back to Osaka on June 11th.
Can I use the 7 days pass for June 7, 13,15,16,17,18,and 19 ( 7 days ) or I have to buy the 14 days pass even though I'm only going to be really using it for a few days ( 5 to 7 days in total ).

So, is the 7 days pass 7 days in a row only or I can use 7 different days I'll be using it?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

The full JR passes all are counted as days in a row (consecutive). Getting a 14 day pass would not be cost effective if you are not traveling far. It would be better to buy a regular ticket to go to Sendai on June 7th, and a 7 day pass for the rest of your time in Japan, if the cost of the regular fare travel exceeds the cost of the 7 day pass.

If you are not traveling far, a regional pass as those listed under Kansai on

might be all your need.

All of this depends on your travel itinerary though, which you have not elaborated on.
