We just got our visa and I am now planning to order JR Pass
but first I want to know the validity of the JR Pass.

We will be in Japan this March 30 and I am wondering if
I will order now or it might be too early because the JR Pass
might expired before we will be on Japan?

Thank you.

Hi there,

A JR Pass is valid for 90 days after purchase. You will thus have plenty of time if you order one now.

Hope this helps,
