I went to Hokkaido riding JAL from Haneda airport. I went to the airport early, and got myself an insurance just in case!
When I arrived at Shinchitose airport, a nice cool breeze hit me! the temperature was lower by 10degrees compared to Tokyo, and it was really refreshing! When traveling in the car, I could see the Sapporo TV tower! The sun was going down around 18:30, and the sunset sky was really beautiful.
