Hokkaido is one of the most popular places for tourists in Japan. So, we recommend you to make a reservation at your earliest convenience. It also means that you have a lot of choices in enjoying beautiful sceneries around volcanoes, lakes, seas and forests as well as good local foods and drinks either before or after the symposium.

Access to Sapporo and Hokkaido University

There are frequent flights between Sapporo and two main hub airports in Japan, which are Tokyo (Narita) and Tokyo (Haneda). International connection flights are also available via several other international airports in Japan (e.g., Kansai, Chubu and Fukuoka). Large hub airports in East Asia (e.g., South Korea and China) also provide convenient connection flights to Sapporo.

From Sapporo (New Chitose) Airport to downtown Sapporo, the first choice is to use a JR Train from Airport Station to Sapporo Station, served about every 15 minutes. It takes approximately 30 minutes. Or, you can use a limousine bus, which also goes to Sapporo Station as well as a few major hotels in Sapporo. They are served every 30 minutes or about an hour.

The Hokkaido University campus is a few blocks north (several minutes walk) from JR Sapporo Station.
