What is the best and the fastest way to travel from Kyoto to Sapporo.

Are there any night trains. As much as I read, all night trains have been retired.

Hi there,

There are indeed, no night trains available for this route. You can however use the Shinkansen bullet trains instead.

The route takes around 10 hours, with a transfer at Tokyo station and Hakodate station. The route is fully covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
