Activating the JR Pass at Narita

We are arriving at Narita on April 7 and taking a limousine bus to Fuchinobe Station. We bought our JR Passes for April 8 thru April 14. Can we activate the JR Passes on the 7th at Narita even though we are not going to use them until the 8th through the 14th? Can I activate them at Fuchinobe Station? If not, how about Tokyo Station or where is the best place to activate them close to Fuchinobe Station?


Hello there,

Yes, activating the JR Pass at Narita Airport is no problem. You can select a first day of use, so you don't have to start using it right away.

Note that it i not possible to do so at Fuchiobe, Tokyo station is possible.

Hope this helps,
