With the Hokkaido Expressway Pass, enjoy unlimited use of Hokkaido’s expressways, for one fixed price!
Be sure to rent the ETC card together with your vehicle.

  • ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) is a system that enables the payment of expressway tolls without having to stop, by means of wireless communication between an antenna located at the toll booth, and the ETC card (IC card) inserted into the card holder in your vehicle.
Important Notes:

Hokkaido Expressway Pass may only be used by visitors to Japan who have foreign nationality.

In order to use the pass, you must present documentation such as a non-Japanese passport.

Advantages

  1. Fixed price for peace of mind!

    Peace of mind, as no matter how far you travel by expressway in Hokkaido, the price is fixed.

  2. No need to Speak or Read Japanese!

    When you use ETC, there’s no need to come to a complete stop at toll booths. And you need not worry about communication in Japanese.

  3. Save more time!

    Hokkaido is huge! It’s about 300 km from New Chitose Airport to Hakodate, and about 450 km to Shiretoko. By using the expressways, travelling times can be shortened.!
