using JR PASS from Tokyo to Sapporo and back


We have just bought JR Passes, do we get the ticket mailed to us or do we collect them?

Also is there any guide to which station we should go to from tokyo to sapporo?

Thank you


Hello there,

We will send you the JR Pass exchange voucher by FedEx, then you exchange the JR Pass voucher for the actual pass once you arrive.

You can use the Tokaido/Hokkaido Shinkansen from Tokyo station to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station, here transfer to a ltd. express train bound for Sapporo. The full route is covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
