#New Chitose Airport

[Hokkaido Travel / SAPPORO - The arrival in Sapporo New Chitose Airport - Meeting Evangelion in Sapporo -

Hokkaido trip

Anyone who travels to Sapporo will most likely be flying into New Chitose Airport because it's actually the main international airport for Hokkaido. 
Although I've used several airports nationwide, by comparison as an airport itself, I've found that I enjoyed New Chitose Airport more than I've ever guessed. It's clean, offers many amenities and is overall very beautiful.

#Omiyage shops (Souvenirs shops) line the walkways 


The New Chitose Airport, like many other airports in Japan, have a bunch of souvenirs shops, which is great for those who forget to buy souvenirs before their trip back home. The Omiyage corner of the airport is always a great choice to find those must have gifts representing Hokkaido as well.








#3rd Floor New Chitose Airport entertainment room


Various interesting shops line this family fun center-like section of the airport. For example there are Doraemon related shops, a ROYCE Chocolate Factory , etc.
We've planned a variety of shops to see on our trip including the Doraemon Sky Park, a dedicated park to enjoy a variety of themed rides and a large Doraemon!!

#Doraemon Official Shop

In addition to the original manufacturers products, this Hokkaido store also provides 
books, accessories, stationery, clothing, selling a variety of goods from the lovable Doraemon. This particular shop has gained quite a bit of popularity, making it a great destination to visit!










# Purikura!!

In addition to the Doraemon Sky Park
Kids Pavilion, there's also:

So it may be a good idea to set aside an hour or two to see everything at the airport while you're still there. ^^
