7days japan rail pass

7days Japan Rail Pass


i would like to find out how is the Japan Rail Pass works, because i'm traveling on 8/Feb to 18/Feb. it's more than 7days. can i get the 7days pass? in between of the trip i have 5day not using the pass.

i will travel for 8/Feb to hakuba, 14/Feb to Tokyo, 16/feb to osaka 18/feb to narita airport.
From 8/Feb to 14/feb i will not need to use the pass, so do the days still count?
can i still get 7days pass?

any transport with JR i can just use?

Hope to hear you soon.




Hi Jasmine,

Using a 7 day JR Pass will already pay off for Tokyo - Osaka - Narita airport. Any additional travel will just save you more :)

You can also include Hakuba - Tokyo in it, though it would meaning exchanging the JRPass beforehand, because the JR Pass can't be exchanged at Hakuba. Also keep in mind that the pass counts in consecutive days, even if you don't use it.

Hope this helps,
