Hokkaido Railway Company

The Hokkaido Railway Company (北海道旅客鉄道 Hokkaido Ryokaku Tetsudo) is one of the constituent companies of Japan Railway. It operates intercity rail services in Hokkaido prefecture, Japan.

At the time of its privatization in 1987, JR Hokkaido operated 21 railway lines totalling 3,176.6 km of track, as well as a ferry service to Aomori. Since then, that number has dwindled to just below 2,500 km, as unprofitable lines have been shut down or spun off (in the case of the Hokkaido Chihoku Kogen Railway). The ferry service has also been replaced by the Seikan Tunnel.

Hokkaido Railway's headquarters are in Sapporo.
