Trains for JR PASS

Dear sirs,
We are planning to visit Hokkaido on Dec 2016 for 12 days. Our itinerary will be as follows:

DAY 1-2: OTARU
DAY 3 : HAKODATE
DAY 4-5: NISEKO
DAY 6-7: OBIHIRO/TOMAMU
DAY 8-10: ASAHIKAWA/FURANO/BEIE
DAY 11: SAPPORO
DAY 12: FLYING HOME

Is JR Pass will help us to move around between those cities?
Can you let us know, the JR Pass will valid for which trains (JR/Ltd exp/??)

For moving around with bus/tram, what is the ticket/pass that we have to buy?

Looking forward to hear from you.

TBR,
susana

Hi Susana,

All JR trains in Hokkaido are included in the JR Pass (including the Hokkaido Shinkansen and Ltd. express trains), you will be able to travel between all the above places as long as they have a rail station.

For other transport like the bus/tram, just pay your fare when exiting the bus/tram.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
