Start of Work

Hi , in the process of ordering I need to write the date of useing my JR-pass. Does it mean that it start work from that day? I'm going there for 1 mounth and I not sure when I want to start using it.


Hi there,

The date asked in the order form only serves as indication and you are not bound by it. You can activate the JR Pass at any day within 90 after purchase. The date is there to prevent people from buying it too far in advance.

I hope this helps,
