Hi there! I'm planning a 9 day vacation to Japan and want to make sure I am eligible for the JR Pass. I keep seeing the a "temporary visitor" as someone staying 15 to 90 days. Do I still qualify if my trip is only 9 days?

Hi there,

The length of your stay can be different from the length of your visa.

As long as your visa states: Temporary visitor (V), then you can use the JR Pass.
