Regional JR pass

For a regional JR pass, do you have to activate it in that region? For example, if I have a Kyushu JR pass, can I activate it in Haneda or a Tokyo JR station, as long as I designate a future date to start using the pass?


  • Hi,
    Generally, you must activate it in the region where it is used. Even for the Hokkaido Rail Pass, you can only buy the exchange order in Tokyo - it must be activated at one of the larger JR Hokkaido offices.
