  1. Are multiple entry visa holders eligible for JR Pass?
  2. Is it possible to use the JR Pass on the same day of our arrival? We are arriving at Narita Airport on May 26 at 15:00, we plan to travel to Osaka on the same day.

Hi there,

1.) I am afraid that JR has stated that multiple entry visa holders are not eligible for the JR Pass.

2.) The JR Pass can be used on this same day of arrival in Japan.

Hope this helps,
