questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

i don't know my exact travel dates

I don't know my exact travel dates

Hi, me and my wife will be traveling Japan for the first time next year. My brither gave us the plane tickets and they are open through all year, but subjet to availability, so we're not sure when will we be there. Do the JR tickets must be bought to be used on certain dates or they're activated when we arrive to Japan?


Hello there,

A JR Pass has to be activated within 90 days after purchase, that's the only condition.

Hope this helps,


Yes, that's exactly what I was worried about. Thanks a lot, Daniel.
