optimum fare deal

Optimum fare deal

Dear Sir/Madam

I 'm visiting Hokkaido on the coming Christmas, i am only in Japan for six Days. instead of buying a Seven Day JRPASS, would you said it was cheaper to buy single trip fare as compared to earlier mentioned.

for example, i will be staying in Hakodate, and plan to travel only to Sapporo and only towns for day trips. please advise. Thank You.

Hi there,

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary. This is a great tool for finding any price in Japan.

If you stay in Hokkaido only, then I would recommend looking at a Hokkaido Rail Pass or normal tickets.

Hope this helps,
