Hakodate to Tokyo !

May I know any direct night train from Hakodate to Tokyo ? And if I buy the 7 days rail pass can cover this journey ?

Hi there,

Unfortunately there no longer is a night service from Hakodate - Tokyo, these have retired recently.

Instead you can use the Shinkansen and limited express trains that run during the day. These are covered by the JR Pass.

May I know the Cassiiopeia train also no longer operate ?

Hi again!

This train still runs but only the basic fare is covered by the JR Pass and you still have to pay for the limited express and accommodation fee. These add up to a lot and depend on class traveled in and distance.

Hi there,

Unfortunately I do not have this by hand. Your best bet is to keep an eye out on the JR East website.
