Night Train That Departs On Last Day of Pass

I am hoping to get a JR pass valid from Sunday. I want to take a night train that departs the following Saturday but arrives on Sunday. Will my pass cover the trip (I understand it will cover a night train but not a compartment, but am concerned because the journey straddles the expiry of my pass). FA


Hi there,

Yes you are allowed to "finish the ride" if you board the train before midnight.

Any train after than will require a normal fare.
