When should i buy JR pass?

Hello, I'm Malaysian from Penang state. I would like to buy JR pass for 14days. I'll travel to Japan on 28 Feb 2016, when should i buy JR pass?


Hi there,

The JR Pass can be purchased up to 90 days before you start using it. My advise would be to buy it at least one month in advance, this way you are sure that you have the JR Pass and can put your mind to other important things, such as planning the details of your visit to Japan.
