New Chitose Airport (IATA: CTS, ICAO: RJCC) is the international and domestic airport servicing Sapporo, Niseko and other cities of Hokkaido.
Lake Shikotsu is a key feature within the Shikotsu-Toya National Park. Lake Shikotsu is a caldera type lake, that is formed in the opening at the top of a volcano, which is the second deepest lake in Japan (max 363m) giving it the second largest volume of any lake in Japan. This ratio of depth to relatively small surface area has made it the northern most ice free lake in Japan. The main river leaving the lake is Chitose River. Lake Shikotsu is easily accessible from nearby Sapporo and New Chitose Airport.
