Takayama to Hakodate on 31 Dec 2015


As I will depart from Takayama at 1 pm on 31 Dec 2015 , is it possible to take a train to Hakodate by JR pass on that day? Will the train be operated?

P.S. I have checked the train's schedule from and found that Express Hamanasu will arrive Hakodate at 12:44am. However, I am not sure if the train will be operated on that day.

Thank you.


Hi there,

There is no train service between Aomori - Hakodate on the 1st of January, because of the installment of new Shinkansen tracks. However even if the train was operated, you would have a hard time reserving seats. It is better to look at other options.

For all the details please see:

Hope this helps you,
