JR Pass Purchase

I will be in Japan from Apr 9-21. When should I purchase the JR pass before I go?


Hi there!

The JR Pass can be purchased up to 90 days before you activate it. I would recommend purchasing it a month before departure. This way you are well on time and can be flexible about the moment when you change your JR Pass.

Hope this helps!
