Hi there,

A would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for your trip. You can make very good savings compared to purchasing normal Shinkansen tickets to Hokkaido and the JR Pass can be used on the super fast Hayabusa Shinkansen to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station. From there normal trains run throughout Hokkaido.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
