Dear all,
When I purchased my JR pass ticket (for 7days), I used a specific starting day (18th of February), but I would like to activate it few days later (on 22nd of February), is this still possible to use it in the period 22-28th? Can I activate the ticket on 22nd?

Thank you very much in advance,

Hi Arina,

The JR Pass can be activated at any day within 3 months after purchase. You do not have to worry about changing this a day or two :)

Hope this helps,
