Hi Daniel,

I will be travel to Japan next February & have 7days JR Pass Nationwide.

I would like to ask if possible i travel with JR Train/ Shinkansen from Sapporo to Shirakawago, without go to Tokyo? Or do i have to travel from Sapporo to Tokyo still?

I need your suggestion and advice the best way to use JR Pass for my trip from Sapporo to Shirakawago.

Thanks in advance for your help & look forward to hearing the reply.

Hi Lely,

You will have to make a transfer at Tokyo for this route. Best option is to take a Shinkansen to Kanazawa from Tokyo, then the bus to Shirakawa-go.

Kind regards,
