Experiences with Spring Airlines within Japan domestically

Any experiences with this airline? Thinking of booking Tokyo > Sapporo for a ridiculously cheap price compares to ANA (1/4 cost). I don't really care about frills or anything. Is this airline (in Japan) a disaster or good enough for a short-haul? Thanks.

I haven't flown Spring Japan yet, but I do fly 9C fairly often, and don't have any serious complaints. I always pay extra for a seat in the first two rows. I wrote a trip report after my first 9C flight ~5:years ago,and have taken about 20 more flights since.

I flew them Tokyo to Osaka a while back. Ex-airberlin 737. The crew were kinder than expected on an LCC (I know it's Japan, but Jetstar crew can be real snappy sometimes), seats were hard and tight, but definitely would fly them again on Japan domestic if schedule and pricing was right. You'll be totally fine for Tokyo-Sapporo.
