When it comes to activating the rail pass in Japan, please keep the office hours at the various stations up-to-date. I thought I wouldn't be able to activate it late in the evening at Narita airport because of the opening hours on the leaflet, but it was no problem after all.

Fast delivery and the pass served its purposes greatly. I was able to see so much of Japan in such a short time. Wonderful experience.
