Activation of Jr pass for a later date after arriving

Is it possible for me to arrive in Japan day 1 and have my Jr pass activated on day 5? This is because for the first 4 days I'll be staying in 1 place. I will start going around other places starting day 5.

Hi there,

Yes, that is no problem. You can select your first day of use when you exchange the JR Pass and don't have to start using it right away.

Hope this helps,
