JR Hokkaido and JR East are launching a “JR Tohoku – South Hokkaido Rail Pass.” It is valuable for foreign tourists traveling in the South Hokkaido and Tohoku areas.

This rail pass allows you to take JR trains (including Shinkansen and limited express trains) in the South Hokkaido (including Sapporo, Hakodate and New Chitose Airport) and Tohoku areas. Recommended for tourists who arrive at Hakodate Airport and New Chitose Airport by airplane and travel inside these areas.

It is less expensive than the existing “JR East – South Hokkaido Rail Pass” because it limits the area it can be used in.

Advance purchase discounted price(sales outside Japan) : 19,000 yen (adults)

Regular price (sales within Japan) : 20,000 yen (adults)
