timing of 7 days pass

Let say If I am to starting using my 7 days JR pass on a Saturday at 7pm will the pass be good until Sat at 6:59pm the week after?


Hi there,

The JR Pass is counted in full days and the first day is counted as a full day, no matter what time you start using it.

Hope this answers your question,
