questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

9 days 8 nights at sapporo

9 days 8 nights at Sapporo

Dear all experts,

Good day! I am going to hokaiddo from 7th until 15th December 2016. I booked 8 nights also in saporro cause I do not know how to plan the trip as after I bought the air tickets only I realized a lot of them going in through chitose airport but going back through Hakodate. I bought return ticket chitose.

I really dunno if I buy the 7 days JR pass will save me a lot or I would end up spending too much on the JR 7 days which I don't really travel long distance.

I am planing to have all day trips from saporro and will only stay at otaru a night.

Pls advise!

Hi May,

If you fly in and out of Hokkaido. Then your best option is to buy normal rail tickets or possible look at a Hokkaido Pass.

A JR Pass however is a great option if you use the Shinkansen to travel to Hokkaido.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
