If you will be at Sapporo-Chitose Airport (CTS) early on arrival day or have additional travel plans prior to joining us for SASS Japan, we recommend options 2. If you need to kill a few hours at the airport and in order to use the private SASS transfer, you can do so by checking out the incredible Chitose Airport Onsen (seriously, it’s an amazing way to wash off that post 11 hr flight funk) and then meet us on time for option 1.
