How long is the validation date after bought.


I am plaaning to go to Japan in the end of June. If I buy the JR Pass now, will it be expired in the end of June? How long is the validation date of the pass between bought and activate?


Hello there,

A JR Pass can be exchanged up to 90 days after purchase. Buying it today (9th of May) would mean that you would have to activate it before 7th of Auguest.

Hope this helps,
