A night train on the last day of expiration?

Is it possible to book a night train for example, 7.7 if your pass expire on the same day? The train would arrive next morning, after expiry.

I'm aware that I have to pay for a compartment unless the train has reservable seats, I'm just wondering if you're supposed to ezit the station before midnight.


Hi there,

Yes you can book a night train for the last night of your JR Pass and you can finish the ride for free, given that you board the train before midnight.
