I have purchased my 7Day-JR Pass for use date on 3/15/2016 & my last day should be 3/21/2016.
If on the very 1st day ie 3/15 I did not activate the Pass, instead of 3/16 I begin to use JR Pass. Will my
1 day be burned or rather it be extended to 3/22/2016 as my last day to use?

Hi Kimlee,

The JR Pass is counted in 7 consecutive days, starting from the first day of usage. You can select your first day of use when you exchange the pass and it will start counting then as well.

In other words, the JR Pass would be valid until the 22nd of activated on the 16th.

Hope this helps,
