Getting to Sapporo
With 50 flights a day from Tokyo Haneda Airport and 15 flights per day from Tokyo Narita Airport, Sapporo is well connected to the Japanese mainland. The flight from Tokyo to Sapporo’s New Chitose Airport takes an hour and half. The airport is designed to accommodate all our needs and desires, and then some we probably hadn’t even thought of yet! Besides its many shops, New Chitose Airport hosts a cinema and even has a relaxation onsen (hot spring spa), such as can typically be found throughout Japan.
From the airport, you can board the JR Express Airport train. This train runs from inside the airport directly to Sapporo Station in the heart of the city. The train ride takes about 40 minutes.
Getting to Stadium
To get to the Sapporo Dome stadium, take the Toho Subway Line and get off at Fukuzumi Station. The stadium is then reached by a leisurely walk from the station (10 min. on foot).
For the Rugby World Cup 2019, which shall be held in Japan, two matches will take place in Sapporo at the Sapporo Dome. With a capacity of more than 40,000, this stadium is quite large and has an impressive feature. As the stadium is fully covered, the lawn used for rugby and football matches is fully removable! With its own air cushion mechanism, the turf can be switched between grass for football matches and an artificial turf for baseball matches. It took three years of researching to develop this ingenious system that allows a landmass of 8,300 tons to move, just like that!
You will be able to eat inside the stadium, or even follow the game on giant screens for those who have not managed to get a prime place.
