questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

can i exchange my exchange order into the jrpass days after my arrival to japan

Can I exchange my exchange order into the JRPass days after my arrival to Japan

I want to get a 14-days JRPass, but I will in Japan during 20 days (in my first days I will be in a congress). So, if I buy the exchange order, can I exchange it days after my arrival to Japan? For example, the fourth day? Or I have to exchange the exchange order the same day that I arrive to Japan?

¡Thank you!
(and sorry for my awful english)


Hi there!

You can activate the JR Pass at any moment! The only restriction is that you start using it within 90 days after purchase.

More details can be found in our Blog.

Hope this helps!


Thank you very much!
