Hokkaido Shinkansen

JR Hokkaido and JR East have set an ‘Ekikara Discount Ticket’ exclusively for the Tohoku & Hokkaido Shinkansen ‘Hayabusa’ and ‘Hayate’ lines, and the limited express ‘Hokuto’ service.

The ‘Ekikara Discount Ticket Special’ for the Tohoku & Hokkaido Shinkansen (including a rail pass) is half the price of the Shinkansen e-ticket service. For example, the price for Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto to Shin-Aomori Station is 3,750 yen, and for Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto to Morioka Station is 6,610 yen. Tickets are on sale from one month prior to the departure date at 10:00 AM until 20 days before at 1:50 AM. This applies to all ordinary car and green car reserved seats on ‘Hayabusa’ and ‘Hayate’ trains.

The ‘Ekikara Discount Ticket’ (including a rail pass) for the limited express ‘Hokuto’ service offers a 40% discount off the regular combined price of a rail pass and reserved express ticket. For example, the price between Sapporo (city) / Shin-Sapporo (city) and Goryokaku / Hakodate stations, or from Sapporo (city) to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station is 5,660 yen, and from Shin-Sapporo (city) to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station it is 5,530 yen.
