Time frame to use the JR pass

Hi there,

About the 7-day pass, if I activate it at the day 1 at 9am will it ends at the same time of the day 7(9am) or I can still use it until the end of the day?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Gabriel,

The JR Pass is counted in full days and the 1st day is counted as a full day no matter what time you start using it.

Find all the details in our blog post.

Hope this helps,
