hi there,

i arrive in narita at 7pm and can i still be able to activate and use the jr pass to get from narita to shinjuku?
my place that i need to get to is Hotel Shirakawago. since it is late at night.. i just want to make sure what is the best way to get there without getting stuck in a station.

i assume that with luggage and also activating the account and imigration, it may be late by the time i am done at narita.

please advice...

Hi there,

The last Narita Express to Shinjuku departs at 21:44 so you should have plenty of time, even after that, there are local connections that you could use.

I don't think getting on the train is something you have to worry about, unless you get a massive plane delay. Even in that case, you can use a night bus into Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
