questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

date of use

date of use

Hi, I unfortunately put the wrong day that we would start using the passes. I only missed it by a day, and it said that it's ok if I was around the right date. But I wanted to double check.

Hi there,

Do you mean that you put in the wrong date when you ordered on-line? This does not matter as long as you exchange your voucher for your pass within 90 days of purchase.

Just be sure to give the JR staff the right date when you exchange your voucher for the real pass, as the date on the actual pass can not be changed!

Hope that answers your question :)

Hi there :)

I can confirm Daniels comments. The date of use check it to ensure you will use it within the next 3 months rather than a hard and fast date. You'll be fine provided you intend to exchange within the next 90 days.

Hope this helps!
