questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

expiry of 7 day pass

Expiry of 7 day pass

If I activate my pass for first travel on Tuesday April 09 2013 at 1200h what time on what day will my 7 day JR Pass expire? Thanks!

Hi there,

The JR-Pass is valid for 7 consecutive days, including the first day of use, which is counted as a full day.
This would mean that if you active your JR-Pass on Tuesday April 09, you will be able to use it until April 15th 23:59.

Hope this helps,
