Just need to clarify, I am looking at purchasing a 7 day pass as I will be
in Japan June2-12. If I activated JR pass June 2 and use it that day late afternoon, Will it
be valid till the 8th only?
I would like to go to Osaka and return 9th if pass is still valid

Hi there,

Each day is counted as a full day for the JR Pass, no matter what time you first get on the train.

For example, starting the JR Pass on a Monday, means the last day of travel is the following Sunday till midnight. If you activate the pass on June 2nd, then the last day of travel is the 8th.

Kind regards,
