questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

jr pass activation

JR Pass activation


I will arrive to Narita on 24th March but I want to start to use my JR pass from 27th March. Can I activate JR pass in advance at Narita airport when I arrive with activation date 27th March? Or has to be activated directly on 27th March?

Thank you


Hello there,

Yes, that is no problem. You can select a first day of use when you exchange the JR Pass, so you don't have to start using it right away.

Hope this helps,
