travel from osaka to furano

Could you please explain the details of the railway should be taken if i want to travel from Osaka to Furano and back to Osaka?
and of course the overall cost.

Thank you in advance for your kind support.



Hi there!

Here is an itinerary for a rail trip from Osaka to Furano. Be warned however, at nearly 2000km distance, even with the bullet trains this trip comes in at whopping 16 hours!

You may well be better off buying a return flight on one of the budget airlines such as skymark who will start operating Osaka Kansai to Sapporo routes from march 2012. While it is normally quite inconvenient to get a plane for shorter hops, this sort of travel may be more suited to a flight.

You can look up train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
