Activating 7 day JR Pass

Hello -

I have seen multiple posts about traveling in Japan for 10 days and getting a 7 day JR Pass. Previous trips I have activated my JR Pass at Narita Airport. If we only want the 7 day pass for a 10 day trip, how do we activate in Tokyo on the 3rd or 4th day?




Hi Grant,

You go to any of the major exchange stations in Tokyo and activate the JR Pass whenever you like :)

Hope this helps,
