Asahikawa is a center of economy, industry, and culture in northern Hokkaido. It has a famous sightseeing spot “Kamuikotan,” various buildings based on the history of native Ainu people and the woodwork culture. As Asahikawa is located in the center of Hokkaido and thus functions as a logistics hub, various choices of seafood, beef, and vegetables are brought here from all over Hokkaido. Asahikawa is also in a basin surrounded by the system of the Taisetsu-zan Mountain. Its unique landform and rich nature have encouraged this area to develop excellent food culture such as rice and local sake. Including the famous “Asahiyama Zoo” and “Asahikawa Ramen,” the City has deep attractiveness thanks to its unique historical background and landform.
Regular flights are available between Asahikawa Airport and Haneda Airport, and between Asahikawa and Chubu Airports. In summer, seasonal flights come from the Osaka Area such as Itami Airport and Kansai International Airport. In 2018, a new terminal for international flights was newly constructed to be ready for accepting inbound visitors. It takes about 30 minutes from Asahikawa Airport to the center of Asahikawa City by taxi, or 35 minutes by scheduled bus service.
