Fastest way to get from New Chitose Airport to Hakodate

Hi, urgent help needed. Arriving from HK at New Chitose Airport at 1510. We are trying to make it to Mt Hakodate the same night. Not many days in Hokkaido. Is it possible at all? Many thanks.

Should be able too,

Take the train from the airport to Minami Chitose and change to the super hokuto.

I guess it will take a while to get through immigration so

There's a train about 5pm from the airport

Change at minami chitose 5.12pm

Super hokuto no,18 Minami Chitose 5.19pm

arrive Hakodate 8.19pm

It will cost about 8000Y (7240Y for unreserved seat) for a one way ticket (unless you have a rail pass- you can validate or buy a ticket at chitose airport station)

Hope that helps

Thanks for your prompt reply. I know it's a bit tight with the last ropeway leaving at 2050 in december. So, once I reach Hakodate station, then I'll have to run for the streetcar to take me to Mt. Hakodate. Risky I suppose. Hope I can make it.

and if the weather is bad...really not worth doing it!

I'm not joking...if it is raining or snowing...misty,...you won't GET any nightview!

hard to know of course when you are just arriving and rushing for trains...but don't hold your breath!

that said...Hakodate in December..very nice...xmas tree etc down at the warehouses on the waterfront, and the historic area is all lit up.
