questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

kyoto to fukushima, fukushima to sapporo and tokyo to sapporo.

Kyoto to Fukushima, Fukushima to Sapporo and Tokyo to Sapporo.

Hi. I will be travelling to Japan in December. I was wondering if it is possible to use the JRPass from Kyoto to Fukushima (visiting a friend) and from Fukushima, we are planning to head to Sapporo. Then, from Sapporo back to Tokyo, is there any nighttrain available? Please advice. :D

Hi there,

The JR Pass is valid of all these places and you can make outstanding savings using a JR Pass compared to purchasing normal rail tickets.

There is no night train however.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

I see.... Would there be trains leaving every other hour every day for my destinations? And do i need to book the tickets days before, or i could just go YOLO mode with my JRPass? :D

Hi there,

Trains depart very frequently, most routes have at least one train every 30-60 minutes.

You can just hop on the train and YOLO if you like ;)

Personally I prefer getting tickets beforehand to secure seating (and kick someone out of my seat if they seat there without reason).
