questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

when exactly will my pass expire?

When exactly will my pass expire?

Hello,
I just need some clarification on when my JR pass will expire during my trip.

I will be activating it on November 5th and I will be using a 7 day JR pass.
Will it still be valid to use on November 11th? (which is the 7th day) or does it expire midnight November 11th or 12th?

Thank you.

Hello there,

The JR Pass is valid for 7 consecutive days and the first day of travel is counted as a full day. In the your case this would mean that the JR Pass expires at the end of 11th of November, when you activate it on the 5th.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hey Estaban,

Yes the JR Pass would be valid as of 00.01 if you activate it beforehand :)
