有關從札幌回東京2015年12月31日班車停駛

原本打算在2016年1月1日用JR pass從札幌乘搭普通列車回東京,可是聽說從札幌回東京的列車將在12月31日就停駛了。想請問是否有此事?如果是真的停駛了,有沒有別的路線可以利用我的JR pass回到東京(不需而外付費)?謝謝。

Hi Daniel ,
Thank you for your reply.
That news from JR website stating that last day of operation for the JR train service from Sapporo to Tokyo will be on 31/12/15. I plan to take the JR train back from Sapporo to Tokyo on 01/01/16 using my 14 days jR pass. Since the news states that the operation for the last train from Sapporo to Tokyo is 31/12/15 , what other alternative of transport can i take. I do not want to take plane ( because i ready have 14days JR pass) . I need your reply urgent to make plan for my trip.
Thank you

Hi there,

I looked up the official statement of JR Hokkaido:

Unfortunately no alternative transport is offered by JR for this part. You could either use a Ferry from Hakodate - Aomori or look at flights. Train service will resume on the 2nd of Jan, this may also be an alternative.

Hope this helps!
Daniel
