    The crater lake Lake Shikotsu sits on a caldera which was formed some forty to fifty thousand years ago and is open daily from 9am - 10pm.

    We had specially made arrangement to visit the Shikotsuko Ice Festival. Due to its depth of 256 metres, this lake does not freeze over.

    At this time of the year, there are various food stalls at the site. To learn more about the history of Lake Shikotsu, visit the visitor centre.

    The red iron bridge next to the lake is the Yamasen bridge which used to be a railrway bridge.

    Right next to the Chitose river, this aquarium tells the story of the salmon found there. There are numerous fish displays, as well as an observation area which is under the river.

    ゴールドカード、プラチナカードで利用可能なラウンジで、制限エリアの外(国内線ターミナル3階)にあります。
    アルコールと軽食は有料で、ソフトドリンクは無料です。
    滑走路に面しているため、飛行機の離発着を間近に観ることが出来ます。また、天気が良ければ、夕張山地も遠望出来ます。

    You can use the airport lounge if you have gold or platinum card, and you can watch take off & landing scene closely.

    This is a very vibrant airport. The atmosphere is really lovely, with lots of shops selling local food and snacks. There are nice areas where you can sit and wait for your flight, or just walk around and try the snacks.

    We were here just before heading to ANA Chitose Hotel but it was an unsatisfactory visit. While it was rather late at about 4pm (Autumn sun sets at 5pm we noted that there were no many ppe around. In fact our tour group forms the majority!
    Japan has just reopened so probably many of the shops were not ready yet, close to 1/3 of the shops were vacant “Coming Soon” it wrote. We went round the large empty premise looking at the few opening ones .. Still we managed to get some good buys from Zara and Nike.
    Food was an issue as there were very limited openings. The only Ramen stall was closing when we approached, in the end we all went back to Hotel nearby for our late dinner. All hungry by then.
    Rera is unlike the usual Mitsui Outlet and is run by American (style). It was a really (sad) experience that the place was quite deserted, unlike the Reviews we read pre-covid times. We really hope it will bounce back quickly as more tourists arrived to Japan and we will definitely revisit the Outlet whenever we can!

    I think calling this is a park is not enough, it is so big and full of trees. Better to call it forest area. Very big and deep forest and good walking, running or cycling tracks inside. While returning from lake shikotsu via cycling, we went into this park. And really it is worth to take a look of this huge area contains many athletic area. Overall I enjoyed my 2 hours here.

    We went to Lake Shikotsu, as part of Hokkaido Chuo Bus Regular Sightseeing Tour (tour M), which started from Sapporo Station to Snowland Ruruland in Eniwa and Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival.

    The Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival is like a frozen wonderland, created by Queen Elsa. Very cold, but so beautiful and creative. There was a small playground with ice slides and ice rink for kids to play in. Lots of wonderful frozen ice backgrounds, perfect for photo ops.

    The road station is just beside the Salmon Hometown Aquarium by the Chitose river. There are local produces and souvenirs on sale, as well as a nice little food court that serves delicious Hokkaido soup curry as well as soba and chirashi dons.

    The road station is very child friendly -- baby room, hot water for milk, etc. the indoor and outdoor place spaces for children are well equipped, and the rest rooms are bright and exceptionally clean.

    There is also a Lawson convenient store on site.

    Nice little place to make a stop after a visit to the Aquarium.
