Modes of Travel from Tokyo to Sapporo

2 min read

Sapporo, a city in Hokkaido, happens to be the capital of Hokkaido’s northern Japanese islands. Sapporo is a familiar beer brand in Japan too! The city is famous for its Snow Festival, where giant ice sculptures are exhibited. However, when traveling from one city to another, what bothers us the most is transportation mode. Which transport to choose, how to reach, the fares, the safety, etc. are questions that keep coming back to our mind now and then. For Japan sapporo tours, you can either opt for flights, railways, or ferries. You have all the options. It is on you to choose which one will you be comfortable to travel in.

Time and Fare

If you book your air tickets early, the ticket’s cost can be as cheap as ¥9 500. However, the standard price is between ¥15,000 to ¥45,000. It takes about an hour and a half if you fly from Tokyo to Sapporo. Bullet trains will take 4-5 hours from Tokyo to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto, from there another 3.5 hours by express train to Sapporo. Tickets range from ¥27,560–¥27,960 for the express train and ¥23,230–¥23,630 for the bullet train. By ferry, the entire trip takes about 19 hours. The cost is around ¥11,000 each way roughly.

Choose as per your Convenience

Traveling from Tokyo to Sapporo is not much challenging if you know your mode of transportation. Traveling by air is the easiest and time saving too. While traveling on a ferry, you can book a cabin according to your choice and budget since it takes quite some time. The cheapest option on a ferry is small floor space in the common room. However, for your Japan Sapporo tours, you can choose the mode of transport depending on your budget, the time you have at hand, and of course, the mode of transport you are comfortable in. Choose the one that suits you the best. Happy Travelling!
