Hokkaido

Hokkaido

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.

Getting Around

Although wild and underpopulated, Hokkaido is home to more than ten airports that provide direct access to the wilderness. Hokkaido's capital, Sapporo, is a recommended starting point for your trip, with several affordable flights between Tokyo and Sapporo Okadama Airport every day. Alternatively, jump on the four-hour shinkansen from Tokyo up to Hakodate to discover Hokkaido from the south upwards.
