questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

hakodate or sapporo to tokyo

Hakodate or Sapporo to Tokyo


Me and my husband would be visiting Japan around May next year. We choose Sapporo Int Airport as our gate of arrival and will arrive there around 8 AM, we plan to spent a day to have a quick culinary tour around Sapporo and Hakodate and take a bullet train or over night train to go to Tokyo at the same day. Is there any web or else where I can find a schedule for each train and at what time the latest train of the day will depart from hakodate to tokyo? How long this trip will take time?

Need advise, thank you in advance


Hi there,

For travel times, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia this way you can find any route/timetable and more. It's a great tool for planning with the JR Pass. We also have a useful interactive map with all JR lines included.

Do note that the route Sapporo - Tokyo takes about 7 hours and there are no overnight train options.

Hope this helps,
