jr pass activation

JR pass activation

I have a JR pass that is active from 8th November. Is it possible to activate the pass before that date?
I have to catch a train that leaves before the office is open.
Thanks.

Hi there,

Yes you can select a date ahead of time when you exchange the JR Pass. This can be any day up to 30 days in advance from the date of exchange.

More can be found in our blog post.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
