Tokyo to Sapporo is one of the busiest air routes in the world. From the New Chitose International Airport, it takes a two-hour car/bus/limousine ride to Annupuri Village.

Annupuri Village offers the following transfer options. Rates vary depending on the type of service and the number of people.

Car Rental

Annupuri Village is happy to assist you with all your rental car arrangements. However, given the extremely slippery winter roads, we generally do not recommend driving by our guests. All rental car companies require a valid international driving license.


Guests arriving in the town of Kutchan or Niseko using the JR trains from the airport, Sapporo or any other city in Hokkaido will be provided with a free pickup and drop-off service by Annupuri Village. It takes approximately 3 hours from the airport or Sapporo to Niseko, depending on transfer times in Sapporo or Otaru. The closest station to Annupuri Village is the Niseko Station.
