Hello there,

Yes! The JR Pass can be used all the way from Sapporo - Tokyo and on the Osaka. You can even ride the super fast Hayabusa Shinkansen, which is currently the fastest in Japan. This way you will be covering a significant amount of travel and you can make great savings using a JR Pass. A one way Sapporo - Tokyo alone almost pays for a 7 day JR Pass.

Do keep in mind though that the route Sapporo - Tokyo is pretty long, a bit more than 9 hours all together. Be sure to bring a good book or something to keep you entertained during this time.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
