Hi there,

It depends on where in Hokkaido you want to travel. The JR Pass is valid all over Hokkaido, while the JR East South Hokkaido rail pass is only valid in the JR East area and up to Sapporo.

If you wish to purchase a JR East South Hokkaido rail pass, please send us an e-mail at support@jrpass.com with your name, address and pass you wish to purchase.

We will take care of the rest from there.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi again,

The JR Pass can be used for all of Japan (including Tokyo and all of Hokkaido) while the JR East-South Hokkaido Pass is limited to the JR East region (includes Tokyo) and travel up to Sappporo but not up to the north of Hokkaido.
