A number of airport options are available in Hokkaido depending on your ultimate destination.

Most flights from the Japanese mainland fly into New Chitose Airport in the southern part of the island. However, for access to some of the more remote regions, an alternative airport might be more appropriate for your plans.

New Chitose Airport

Traveling to and from New Chitose Airport is very easy. Take the JR Line trains from the airport to the major cities of Sapporo, Asahikawa, Hakodate, Obihiro, and Kushiro. A bus is a better option if you are traveling to the ski resorts of Niseko and Rusutsu as fixed-route buses leave from the airport. For more freedom, rental cars and taxis are another travel option.

Kushiro Airport

Located on the east side of the island, flying to Kushiro provides you with easier access to Akan National Park . A direct bus to Lake Akan and the Akanko Onsen area can be boarded from the airport.

Asahikawa Airport

For quick access to the popular Asahiyama Zoo , the Furano area, and the onsen and mountain trails of Asahidake, fly into Asahikawa Airport located in the center of Hokkaido. There are direct buses to the surrounding points of interest, as well as taxis and car rental.
