I'm know that Cassiopeia already stop it's service on march, is there any other sleeping car train still running from Tokyo to Hokkaido?

Hi there,

There are no longer any sleeper services going to Hokkaido with the opening of the Hokkaido Shinkansen this year.

Hi again,

Not by JR for sure. You could look at a night bus or flight instead.
