I would like to know the validity period once the pass is activated.
Say I have the 7 days pass and I activate it on the following period:

12 April at 8am for the narita express to Tokyo

Would I be still be able to use it for trips at the following time?

19 April at 7am from Shinjuku station to Narita using the narita express

Or do I need to purchase this separately?

Hello Chee Keng,

The JR Pass is counted in consecutive days. This means that the pass would be valid until the 18th if activated on the 12th.

You can of course simply buy a one way ticket to Narita airport.

Hope this helps,
