Timing of JR pass purchase and calendar not showing

We are arriving on March 28th and would like to purchase on September 30th. It appears that is right at 180 days to do the activate the exchange voucher. Is that count correct? Also, the calendar does not go out that far to purchase for a date of March 28th, it is cutoff much earlier than the 180 days, so how do we make that purchase?

Thank you,

Jen Johnson

Hi there,

We can only issue passes that are valid up to 3 months after purchase, as such we can't take orders further than that away and issue at the old pricing. For what a few months for travel next year.

Kind regards,
