7 day or 4 day flex pass

I will be in Hokkaido from June 1st till June 16th. Chitose to Furano June 2nd to June 6th (will have rent a car only during this time) then down to Sapporo from 6th to the 14th then to Chitose airport hotel 14th to 16th. We want to take a day trip to Otaru from Sapporo. Which would be the best pass or passes to purchase?

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you are driving to Furano, and then taking a train to Sapporo. Then a day trip to Otaru?
    If so, no rail pass comes close to paying off. The cheapest train ticket from Furano to Sapporo is ¥3620 - and a trip to Otaru is just ¥640 - leaving you a very long ways from breaking even on a rail pass.

    Thank you for commenting, no we will take a train from choose airport to firano. Six days later take train from firano to sapporo. Two days later day trip to otaru. Should we buy it rail pass or not?

    Even adding the train to Furano, you're still a long ways from making the pass pay off. Just get regular tickets.
