Chitose

3.1
Bodies of Water · Specialty Museums · Shopping Malls
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. It's hard to disagree with this conception as, other than a handful of temples, shrines, and pagodas, Chitose attractions lie out of town. Chitose, as well as having the airport, acts as a gateway to some superlative natural sights, including a national park of crater lakes, volcanoes, and hot springs. Add Chitose and other Japan destinations to your travel plans using our Japan road trip planning tool.
