exact validity - 2 weeks pass

Hi! I was wondering about the exact validity of 2 weeks jr pass. Let's say if I ordered one starting 2nd of april, would it still be valid on 16th of april? Or would it expire 23:59pm of 15th of april?
Thanks for your answer in advance. Cheers!


Hi there,

In this case the JR Pass would expire on 23:59pm of 15th of April. This is because the JR Pass is counted in full days and the first day is counted as a full day too. No matter what time you start using it.

Hope this helps,
