I'm going to Japan October 18 until November 2nd, I will be traveling with my husband and looking at which pass would be best for our goal.
We arrive in New Chitose, staying the night at the hotel there. In the morning we want to go to Sapporo. Hotel there is booked but no plans on what to do there, I'd like to be able to bus and explore around.
Then 1 or 2 days after we want to start making our way down, we haven't booked hotels yet but are going to. My question is, since I plan on going to stay in Hokkaido a few days but the rest in between Sendai and Tokyo, which pass do you recommend? And for how long on each.
I would need to ride the shikansen from hokkaido to sendai and from sendai to tokyo at the very minimum. And smaller bus in each major cities as to not be stranded trying to get to the hotels.
What other suggestions you may find I'd like to hear those as well
