Hi. I will be arriving in Narita airport on 15 Mar 2016 and departing on 22 Mar 2016. We will be covering Disneyland, Mt Fuji and Yuzawa Gala. Plus other cities in Tokyo. The 7 day pass when shall I activate? Upon arrival or a day after?
Thank you 😊

Hi there,

There's not that much difference whether you activate it on the 1st day or use it on the last day. The most important question is on which day you would use the JRPass the most.

I would activate it on the first day if you plan on doing sightseeing than as well.

Hope this helps,
