With the largest international airport on the island, Chitose serves for most visitors as a way in or a way out, rather than a destination in itself.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Lake Shikotsu. Start off your visit on the 2nd (Mon): indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, explore the activities along Lake Shikotsu, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Kirin Beer Hokkaido Chitose Factory, then examine the collection at Royce' Chocolate World, and finally stroll around Aoba Park. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Botanic Garden Hokkaido University and then don't miss a visit to Hokkaido Ramen Dojo.

To see reviews, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Chitose online driving holiday planner.

Drive from Sapporo to Chitose in an hour. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Sapporo in December since evenings lows in Chitose dip to -9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
