We are arriving to Narita on Sept 27 @3:00pm can we make it to Nagano or would you recommend we stay in Narita on the 26th and the activate ouR JR pass on the 28th and leave for Nagano in the morning? We, also plan on traveling up to Sapporro from Nagano....from Sapporro can we take the Shinkansen back to Tokyo or is the ride too long?

Hi again,

Sorry I must have missed your previous post before.

You should have enough time to travel from Narita - Nagano with a 3 PM arrival, alternatively you could travel into Tokyo and travel on the following morning.

The JR Pass can not be upgraded once purchased.
