| I have been to some of the world's best 5-star (SIN, ICN, HKG, HND) airports, but Sapporo's New Chitose tops them all. Why? So much to do and enjoy - Airport History Museum, Royce Chocolate World factory, open-air Observation Deck, Movie Theatre, Onsen, Sky Museum (interactive airline stuff for kids and adults), Hello Kitty Theatre, Hotel, amazing number and variety of food court options. Aside from these "frills", New Chitose excels in what really matters to travelers. Despite huge crowds (Sapporo-Tokyo is one of the world's busiest routes) terminal is spacious and easy to navigate. Efficient check-in counters-one dedicated to just school groups. Spotless restrooms, plenty of seats in departure areas, Easy to use, frequent (every 15 minutes) JR train connections (39 minutes) to Sapporo Station. Polite, hard-working security teams, Short waits on the runway for takeoffs.
