How to get to Yoichi


Yoichi is easily accessible by major highways, located on the west side of Sapporo, the capital of Hokkaido. It's approximately a 90-minute drive from New Chitose Airport, a main gateway in Hokkaido. Major car rental companies are available at the airport. Be sure to book your rental car in advance and bring along an international driver’s license.

Traveling with a rental car is the best way to explore Hokkaido, where many attractions are spread out. Hokkaido roads are tourist-friendly, with wide and open roads in summer. For winter travel, exercise caution when driving on snow. Most rental companies offer cars equipped with 4WD and snow tires.
