questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

7-day jr pass

7-day JR Pass

If I first start using JR Pass, say on Saturday evening, will my 7-day JR pass be valid through next Friday or next Saturday evening?


Hi there,

The JR Pass is valid for 7 days. The first day of use is counted as a full day, so it will be valid until Friday if you activate it the Saturday before.

Also see out blog post about planning with your JRPass for more details.

I hope this helps,
