questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

sapporo to kyoto

Sapporo to Kyoto

I was hoping to use my green pass to travel between sapporo and Kyoto during the day of August 13. I wanted to arrive at a reasonable time in Kyoto, and I was wondering if this would be possible to travel and arrive that same day without extra fees?
Thanks!

If you left on the earliest possible train around 6:30 AM you could arrive in Kyoto at 7:11 PM, killing about 12 hours and 45 minutes. You'd certainly get your money's worth, but you'd pretty much lose the whole day sitting on trains. Alternatively, you could fly using a low cost carrier like Jet Star or Peach, fly for as low as ¥4,690 in just over 2 hours, and still have the whole day for sightseeing. Which do you prefer?
