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.
Step out of the city life by going to The North Country Golf Club and Kiushito Wetland. Get some cultural insight at Royce' Chocolate World and Old Mitsui Bibai Dai 2 Kosentanjo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chitose: Takikawa (Takikawa Folk Museum Annex, Tondenheioku & Takikawa Maruka Kogen Auto Camp Site), Biratori-cho (Shigeru Kayano Nibutani Ainu Museum, Nibutani Ainu Museum, &more) and Chidorigataki Falls (in Yubari). There's much more to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, get outside with Denshin Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Muroran Hachimangu Shrine, and learn about winemaking at Grace Wine Chitose Winery.
