Travel from Sapporo to Asahikawa - Hokkaido, Japan

From Sapporo, I went to Asahikawa to leave the luggage before went to Biei and Furano.
Asahikawa is the second largest city in Hokkaido. I think Asahikawa is quiet town when compare with Sapporo. Asahikawa station is clean and modern. Asahikawa Ramen Village and Zoo are popular sightseeing place.


From Sapporo:

1. By Train: Take Limited Express Super Kamui Train (85 minutes)
                         Unreserved Seat fare: 4,290 Yen
                         Reserved Seat fare: 5,010 Yen (High Season) and 4,610 Yen (Low Season)
*If you have JR pass, reserve seat for free.

2. By Bus: Chuo Bus (Highway Bus)
There are 2 bus stops in Sapporo which are Sapporo Station Terminal and Sapporo Terminal. One way fare is 2,060 yen and round trip is 3,860 yen.
The price is cheaper than taking the train but it takes more time.

When get off at Asahikawa Station, Aeon department store is on the left side.
There is foodcentre on ground floor and big supermarket. Can buy souvenirs from here too.    

There are department stores such as Seibu. Moreover, 100 yen shop, supermarket, anime shops, cosmetic stores are available which not far from Asahikawa Station.
Although, I just stayed in Asahikawa only 1 night, here is good sightseeing place if you like cozy.
