Days of Cover on JR Pass

Goop pm Sir/Madam,

We will be traveling to Japan on December 25 to January 3, 2015. We will land first in Osaka and have sight seeing there till December 30 going to Tokyo.

We will be traveling with kids and infant and we bought a 7-day JR Pass. When will the 7 days start? Will it start when we use it from Kansai Airport to our Swissotel?

How can we reserve a seat?

Hello Ric,

You can select the date of use yourself. Just go to any of these stations and activate the JR Pass. You could do so directly at Kansai Airport. Travel between Osaka - Tokyo is by far the most expansive to be sure to use the JR Pass for that part.

See our blog post below for all information about seat reservations.

Hope this helps,
