I have a family of 8 with 2 elderly and 2 young children arriving in New Chitose Airport on 14 Jun 2014, 20:30pm for a 5 days stay. We will proceed to Otaru.on the 6th day.
As there are various transport options available, we are at a lost and would appreciate any guidance or assistance.
There are (1) Hokkaido Rail pass and (2) Sapporo-Otaru Welcome pass available to tourist.
Which type of pass will it more cost efficient for my group?
Another doubt we have is since we will be arriving in Hokkaido late at night, at 20:30pm, would we be still able to purchase the JR rapid train ticket from New Chitose Airport to Sapporo since the Information Desk at the airport closes at 19:00pm?
