FAQ japan Rail Pass General

Q. Hours or Days?

If I validate my pass in the late evening (maybe around 8pm) of 15th Dec, when it will be expired?

faq The Japan Rail Pass is measured in days rather than hours. Even if you activate the pass in the late evening, it would expire at 23:59 on day 7. This means that if you activate it at 8pm (or anytime) on 15th Dec, it would expire at 23:59 on 21st Dec.
