Travel Information

  • The most common way for international visitors to arrive on Hokkaidō is via New Chitose Airport just outside Sapporo.
  • If you’re thinking about hiring a car we recommend checking what our online partners, Rentalcars have to offer. 
  • Hokkaidō is very much a year round holiday destination as far as Japanese visitors are concerned. This is where much of Japan’s best skiing is found, so it’s popular in winter, but it’s also appreciated for its natural beauty, so spring and autumn are also very popular - especially cherry blossom season, which is early May, and the autumn colours in October are quite something. And summer is warm, sunny, and very, very colourful - the wildflowers here are spectacular.
