SAPPORO NEW CHITOSE AIRPORT
Chitose Airport, now known as the New Chitose Airport, is an airport located 5 km from Chitose city in Hokkaido, Japan. The third busiest airport in Japan, it is located approximately 50 km from Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido. Upon arrival, travellers can make their way to JR Sapporo Station via the JR Airport Express Train, which takes approximately 40 minutes and costs 1070 yen. Do note that this service is only available from 8am to 10pm daily. New Chitose Airport also features an extensive duty-free shopping experience, with shops selling cartoon-related collectibles, and even a made-in-Hokkaido marketplace that sells food items unique to the region that you can bring home for your family and friends. You’ll never have a bored moment here with the wide variety of entertainment options… For example, adults and children can enjoy a day at the Doraemon Wakuwaku Sky Park. Located at Level 3 of the domestic terminal building, this area is open from 10 am to 6 pm, and costs 800 yen for adults, and 500 yen and 400 yen for middle and primary school students respectively. If you feel like sitting back and relaxing, you can even watch a movie at Japan’s first ever airport movie theatre, Jaga Pokkuru Theatre. The theatre is located at Level 4 of the domestic terminal building and is open from 9 am to 12 midnight. There is an appreciation entry fee of 1700 yen for adults and cheaper prices for students and the elderly.
Hokkaido, one of Japan’s four main islands, is known for its pristine and exquisite natural landscapes, still relatively untouched. The weather is known to be harsher during the winter, with heavy snowfall and subzero temperatures, but travellers can expect cooler summers from June to September compared to the rest of Japan. Whether you’re a fan of the cold or the heat, Hokkaido will be an idyllic holiday destination for those wishing to escape from the hectic city life and to soak in nature. During the summertime, outdoor lovers can go hiking, cycling, or camping at the many national parks in Hokkaido. Daisetsuzan National Park is the biggest national park in Hokkaido, while Shiretoko National Park, a world heritage site, is famous for its biodiversity and unspoiled surroundings. During winter, most people travel to Hokkaido for skiing or snowboarding at well-known ski resorts such as Niseko and Rusutsu. After a hard day of hitting the slopes, soak up at one of Hokkaido’s many onsens, which is a traditional hot spring bath.
Although more and more hotels are providing wireless Internet service, it is still not very common in Japan, especially in areas such as Hokkaido. Travellers might want to consider renting a portable wireless router (useful for groups as it can connect up to 5 devices), or purchase a prepaid SIM card. You can find websites online that allow you to pre-book these, even delivering them to your hotel or to the post office at the airport for you to pick up. Alternatively, major electronic retailers such as BIC Camera or Yodobashi Camera will also sell these products. In Hokkaido, credit cards are accepted but it may be more convenient to carry cash, particularly for smaller family-run businesses. Be sure to convert enough cash into Japanese currency, yen, at the airport beforehand as exchange counters may not be as easily accessible within the town.
