Train Travel to Furano
Guests travelling from New Chitose Airport will need to transfer once in Sapporo city, and again at Takikawa station, with the first two trains being rapid services, and the final one a regular train.
Likewise, guests travelling from Sapporo, will take a 1 hour rapid service to Takikawa station and swap trains for the final hour ride to Furano.
Asahikawa city and Furano are connected by rail, but if you are arriving at Asahikawa airport, it is quicker to take the shuttle bus straight to Furano.
