can I go from Osaka to Hokkaido for free with the 3 weeks JR Pass?

hello, can I go from Osaka to Hokkaido for free with the 3 weeks JR Pass? online, the information say that i need to Take the JR from Osaka to Tokyo and then Tohoku Shinkansen from Tokyo to Shin-Aomori Station (3.5 hours). Then, take the JR Hakucho limited express to Hakodate (2 hours) and finally the JR Hokuto limited express to Sapporo (3.5 hours). is the JR Pass covered this trip?
Thank you :)
תודה רבה :)

Hell there,

Yes the JR Pass covers the Shinkansen to Shin-Aomori, in addition to all JR trains in Hokkaido (include the Super Hakucho and Hokuto ltd. expreess services). It is a long trip to make but worthwhile if you ask me. Just bring a good book and something to keep your entertained in the train.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
