Hi there,

Just take a train, there are frequent services from Sapporo station to Shin Chitose Airport. You can even reserve a seat in advance if you like.

Its considered a local service, so the price is low too.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Brenda,

The difference is that the Hokaido Pass is valid only Hokkaido, while the JR Pass is valid all round Japan.

It depends on how much travel you do whether a pass will help you make savings.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps too!
Daniel
