When you go to South East part of Hokkaido, these trains take you there. Super Ozora and Super Tokachi are operated on same route. Super Ozora connect Sapporo and Kushiro. Super Tokachi connect Sapporo and Obihiro. These trains are very popular and the reserved seats are sold out very often. Especially JR Hokkaido give you a great service in Green car. Sometimes Green car is sold out earlier than Ordinary class. Both trains are fully covered by Japan Rail Pass. So if you have a plan to take these trains, I strongly recommend you to reserve your seat when you exchange your Japan Rail Pass.
I would like to share the information about these trains with you.

KIHA-283 series is used for both Super Ozora. KIHA-261 series is used for Super Tokachi. Both fleets equip nice features and good seats.
KIHA-283 series Green seat is one of the best in all JR trains. It has a powered seat and 2+1 seat configuration. It has a power outlet. Ordinary class is 2+2 seat configuration and the leg space is 960mm. It is not a bad choice.
KIHA-261 series Green seat is same seat configuration 2+1 and interior as 283 series. But it has a leather seat. The seat does not have strong leather smell. But if you do not like a leather seat, It is not recommended. Ordinary seat is almost same as 283 series.
