jr pass from tokyo to sapporo or hokkaido area

JR Pass from Tokyo to Sapporo or hokkaido area

Would the JR pass covers transportation cost from Tokyo to Sapporo or Hokkaido area? II've check the hyperdia and gave me the results from tokyo to shin-aomori will have to take a shinkansen then from shin-aomori have to transfer using limited express super hakucho 15 then transfer again using limited express hakuto 91. My question is, would this route be covered by the JR pass or would we still need to pay additional cost? Thank you. Further, is there other short time period going to sapporo by land or is this the fastest route we could take?


Hi there!

The entire route Tokyo - Sapporo is covered by the JR Pass and you can use the fastest trains available!

The quickest route is to take the Hayabusa Shinkansen from Tokyo - Shin-Aomori and use limited express trains from there to travel into Hokkaido.

I hope this helps!
