Should we get 7 days or 14 days pass? We might consider to go to Hokkaido for 3-4 days.



Hello there,

You are on the right track to making savings with a JR Pass. I would decide on whether you will go to Hokkaido. This would be the biggest part of the trip. Both in travel time and in how useful the JR Pass will be for you.

I definitely do recommend a JR Pass if you plan to go up to Hokkaido.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,


Thank you Daniel San.
We will not go to Hokkaido this time.
14 days pass give us more flexibilty.
