Tokyo-Hokkaido bullet-train fees to be cheaper than airfares

SAPPORO – Hokkaido Railway Co. said Tuesday that a reserved-seat ticket for bullet-train service between Tokyo and Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto Station in Hokkaido will cost ¥22,690 per adult, cheaper than current fares for flights linking the capital and Hakodate.

The company, better known as JR Hokkaido, filed for transport ministry approval for fares for its Hokkaido Shinkansen Line, scheduled to open on March 26, 2016, between Shin-Aomori Station and Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto, which is located in the city of Hokuto, next to Hakodate.

Shin-Aomori, in Aomori Prefecture, is the northern terminal of East Japan Railway Co.’s existing Tohoku Shinkansen Line, which links it with Tokyo Station. The Tohoku and Hokkaido Shinkansen lines will be directly connected, allowing passengers to travel between Tokyo and Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto without changing trains.
