questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

must choose travel date when order?

Must choose travel date when order?

I need a 7 day pass only. I will be in Japan 2 weeks but unsure as of now which 7 days I need my pass for. Must I select dates for pass upon purchase or can I just activate the 7 day pass when needed?


Hi there,

The date on you are asked for during your order only serves as indication and is not binding in anyway.
You can start using the pass on any day within 90 days from purchase.

Let me know if you have any other question :)
