Shin hakodate hokuto station
The Hokkaido Shinkansen links Shin-Aomori Station with Sapporo. The route is about 360km long.
On April 2005, construction plan approval was received for the first stage of work from Shin-Aomori to Shin Hakodate (Provisional Name). On March 26 2016, Shinkansen services began for the 149km long journey between Shin-Aomori Station to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto Station.
Now, it operates 10 trains per day to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto Station from Tokyo, and 1 train per day each from Sendai, Morioka, and Shin-Aomori.
In 2012, construction began to connect Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto to Sapporo, with a planned opening date by the end of 2030.
We are looking forward to more interregional exchange between the Tohoku area and the metropolitan area because of the speed and reliability of the Shinkansen.
