question about birth date on application

question about birth date on application

I booked and received 4 JR rail passes. On the application we listed the birth date wrong on one of the people by one day. Is this going to be a problem when we go to pick up the passes at the train station?


Hi there,

This will not be a problem.

We ask for the date of birth as a check to ensure that the customer's age is over 6 years old and are purchasing the correct ticket.

I hope this helps!
