When it comes to getting around like a local, nothing beats the convenience of public transport. For tourists, however, it can be a little overwhelming and confusing — not to mention the hassle of fishing for spare change in your pocket every time you need to ride. If you're planning a trip around Hokkaido Island, do yourself a favor and purchase a Hokkaido Rail Pass.
This pass allows unlimited trips on JR Hokkaido trains and designated JR busses in Hokkaido. Valid for 3, 5, and 7 consecutive days or 4 flexible days after the activation date, it's great value for those who want to visit Shirogane Blue Pond, Asahiyama Zoo, Lake Toya, and other destinations in the area. Take advantage of this great offer to see a lot more for a lot less!
