Can i use 2 rail passes?

Hi, i'm heading back to japan again for 4 weeks later this year.

My question is, can i purchase 2 rail passes, and use them at the beginning and end of my trip?
For example activate my first rail pass on October 1st, that will expire on October 7th. Then 2 weeks later on October 21st, activate another 7 day rail pass.
