we will be in Japan between 22. 2. - 14 .3. 2020.

As we understand that we will receive the Exchange Order delivered to our home (Slovenia) and will have to Activate the JR Pass in Japan (we get an actual pass there).

We will arrive in Tokyo on 22. of February and wish to activate the 14-day JR Pass from 24. 2. until 8. 3. - is this possible?

Best regards,

Hi Ema,

Yes, that's basically how the pass works :) You can start the JR Pass at any day that you are in Japan and do not have to do so right from the start.

Kind regards,
