My trip will start from : 20/05 -29/05/2016.

Day 1 : I arrive at New Chitose Airport at 9am. We thought of overnight at Sapporo (1 N)

Day 2 : From Sapporo. Should we go Hakodate or Otaru first ? South and centre.. I bit confused.. Which trip can save my budget ? Please help

Hi Angel,

Otaru is very close to Sapporo, so it would make sense to visit Otaru first before traveling on Hakodate.

With travel to Hakodate, look at using a JR Hokkaido Pass.

Hope this helps,

Hi Daniel san,

But, if I need to save some time.. Possible, I travel straight from New Chitose Airport, by JR Hokkaido Pass.
The journey take 3.5 hours ?

Since my 9 days trip, I should go for 7 days passes, right ?

By using the JR pass, I can travel whole Hokkaido ?

Please advise..

Thank you.
