We are planning to spend about a week in Japan. However, it seems we won't need to spend a lot of time Hokkaido, so we are planning to go down to other parts of Japan. What are some economic ways I can travel from Hokkaido down to Tokyo? What would the cost be like?

Hello there,

The cost of a single ticket is ¥ 24,340, note that this can be more if you take breaks during your travel.

The alternative would be to take a flight, however ticket prices can differ a lot.
