There are several choices to reach Sapporo. The most convenient way is to arrive at Chitose (Sapporo) international airport. In this case, however, international air flights are limited (Only Korian airline or Cathey airline is available). Arriving at Narita airport or at Kansai airport will be a reasonable choice.

After arriving at Narita (Tokyo) international airport, please (1) take a domestic flight at Narita airport for Sapporo, or (2) move to Haneda airport by limousine bus (110 minutes), and take a domestic flight at Haneda airport for Sapporo.

Arrival at Kansai (Osaka) international airport, and change to a domestic flight at the same airport to Sapporo.

At Chitose (Sapporo) airport, participants are recommended to take a JR railroad train to Sapporo Station (Airport Express, 40 minutes), then you can arrive at the Aspen hotel in only 3 minutes walking. Our staff will take care of foreign participants at Chitose (Sapporo) airport or at the JR railroad station.
