When you convert JR-Rail pass voucher to a JR-Rail pass, can you set the date or does it start from that moment?
When I have a start date for the Japan Rail pass, can I start to make reservations?
For example, arriving in Japan on the 1st, wanting to start travel on the 8th and start reserving the seats before that time. Is it possible?
I'd rather not waste time on the day of travel getting the pass and we won't be near a major JR rail pass exchange station that day.
