Can I buy more than 1 Railpass?

I am visiting Japan for a six week holiday. Is it possible to buy two 2 week passes to cover a total of four weeks of the holiday? The start dates would be separated by art least a week.


Hi there,

Yes, you can buy more than 1 rail pass with a split in the middle (eg 2 x 7 day rail passes). This is a very popular choice for people travelling to japan for a month or more.

Please note that the Japan Rail Pass must be activated in Japan up to 3 months from the date of purchase. At activation, you can specify the start date of your rail pass validity to be up to 1 month in the future.

Hope this helps!
