Start using the pass

Dear sir, when I start using the 7 day pass for example start from 4 PM 01 Dec then finish by 3:59PM 07 or 08 Dec 359PM?thank you!

Hi there,

A JR Pass is counted in full days and the first day is counted as as full day, no matter what time you start using it. For example, activating the JR Pass on a Sunday will mean that the last day is the next Saturday.

Hope this helps,
