Chitose

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Nibutani Ainu Museum and Yoshitsune Shrine. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ushigoya no Ice and Chitose Outlet Mall Rera. And it doesn't end there: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, play a few rounds at The North Country Golf Club, and learn the secrets of production at Kirin Beer Hokkaido Chitose Factory.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Chitose trip itinerary builder site.
