questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

consecutive days?

consecutive days?

Does one have to use the 7 day pass on consecutive days or can one use it for a few days and then later a few more?


you have to use it in 7 consecutive days.
Hope this info helps!


Hi there,

JR Passes are valid for consecutive days. However you don't have to use it every day to make good use of it. Simply making a return Tokyo - Kyoto in two days will already pay for the pass.

Hope this helps,
