Activating JR Pass


My family and I arrive at Haneda airport at 6:30 PM on May 1st. I've booked a place in Osaka for the night. However, I just realized that the office hours for JR EAST Travel Service Center is from 7:45 AM - 6:30 PM.

Is there any place I could still activate the JR Pass?


Hi there,

The JR Office at Tokyo station opens at 7:30. You could already travel on to Tokyo station and Haneda and exchange the JR Pass there. A one way ticket is ¥ 650 but having the travel behind you and JR Pass exchanged sooner will probably save you an hour or so.

Hope this helps,
