i can decide if is better for me to take the Regional pass (6days in 14) or the JRPass 14days, can you help me see which is worth (or if there are better option to combine)?

Feb. 6th - Arriving at Asahikawa airport
Feb. 7th - Day trip to Furano from Asahikawa
Feb. 8th - Transfer from Asahikawa to Sapporo
(those trasfer will be not cowered from the regional pass) Feb. 9th - Day trip to Shikotsuko (bus trip)
Feb 10th - Sapporo and Otaru (and back to Sapporo) >> i was planing to activate on this day the Regional Pass ESHPASS DAY 1
Feb 11th - Sapporo to Noboribetsu to Hakodate ESHPASS DAY 2
Feb 12th - Hakodate to Aomori ESHPASS DAY 3
Feb 13th - Hakodate to Hirosaki >> not using the pass
Feb 14th - Resort Shirakami to Akita ESHPASS DAY 4
Feb 15th - Akita to Kakunodate to Tazawako to Tokyo ESHPASS DAY 5
Feb 16th to 19th - Tokyo and to Narita on the 19th ESHPASS DAY 5

  1. Do you think that this itinerary will be ok?
  2. How is it thinking on the weather condition?
  3. My bigger doubt is on Feb 15th is it maybe to much?

Let me please know what you think and suggest, thank you very much

Hi Guia,

1.) Yes, I think it makes sense and is OK :)

2.) I can't predict the weather unfortunately, right now Japan is having a very mild winter. I'm not sure how that will play out in Feb, though I think you will be fine traveling around and enjoying Japan.

3.) I've done similar trips like this, in the same region. The Best advice I can give you is: ask yourself if you're up for it. If yes, then plan it well and start early, like getting on the train at 6am.

Kind regards,
