Using date

Can I exchange the jr pass when I arrive at Narita airport but use it after 5 days I exchange, then the 7 days will start to count? Does this pass goes from odawara to Osaka and then back to Tokyo? Thanks.


Hi there,

Yes, you can do it like at. When you exchange the JR Pass, its possible to select a first day of use up to 30 days in the future.

The pass also covers thee Shinkansen bullet trains from Odawara to Osaka and back to Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
