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 the JR railroad station.
