4) Domestic Flights to Sapporo New Chitose

If you are heading to Niseko but would like to spend some time in Honshu (Japan's main island) before flying up to Hokkaido (Japan's North island) in Tokyo, Kyoto or Osaka, in addition to Japan Airlines and ANA, there are a number of Low Cost Carrier airlines that fly to Sapporo New Chitose. Flight time is 1hr45 between Tokyo and New Chitose.

Please bear in mind that the Japanese carriers do not release flights until 2-4 months in advance. So if you can't find any reasonably priced internal flights further out, don't worry.

The baggage allowance on most domestic flights in Japan is lower than elsewhere in the world. We recommend taking advantage of Japan reliable, fast & inexpensive domestic courier service called Takkyubin. There are Takkyubin counters at Tokyo Narita Airport and Kansai Internation Airport. They will deliver to your resort accommodation, saving you from lugging those oversized ski bags around with you.
