questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

length of jr pass

Length of JR Pass

I intend to purchase x2 JR 7 day passes but I land in Tokyo on 27/08/14 and depart on 03/09/14

This means I will be in Japan for 8 days however on the eighth and final day (03/09/14) we are just going to narita airport at 13:00

Could we reserve the JR Narita Express return tickets for the 03/09/14 before the JR passes expire after 7 days


Hello there,

The JR Pass can only be used to reserve tickets during the validity period of the pass. So you would have to buy a normal ticket for travelling back to Narita Airport.

A better option however may be to buy the 1,500yen Narita Express ticket upon arrival and start using the JR Pass a day later. This way you cover your way back to Narita with the JR Pass and travel into Tokyo with a great discount.

Hope this helps!
