the duration of validity

The duration of validity

Hi, I have a question
If I started using the JR pass on the Oct17th at 15:00 o'clock , will the ticket expire on Oct 24th 15:00 o'clock??


Or it's gonna expire on Oct23th ? I just wonder it's gonna count on date on count on the time exactly?


Hi there!

The JR Pass is counted in days instead of hours or minutes. This means that the first day of use is counted as a full day no matter what time you start using it. It would thus be valid until Oct23rd 23:59 if you start using the JR Pass on Oct 17th.

Hope this helps!
