questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

Kids age

My son turns 12 in October. What type of pass is he eligible as of today? Child pass or adult pass?


Hi there,

Your child has to be below the age of 12 when you place the order of the JR Pass. Even if you will use it later on.

Do keep in mind that any JR Pass has to be activated within 90 days after purchase.

Hope this helps,
