Hokkaido and Beyond combines our Charms of Hokkaido Tour series, which features the natural splendor and cultural delights of Hokkaido, with our Beyond Tokyo series, which takes you outside the Tokyo metropolis to explore history, culture, and local scenery nearby destinations depending on season, and may include Nikko, Yokohama, Karuizawa, Kawazu, Tochigi, Ibaraki, Mount Fuji, and Nagano. Our Hokkaido and Beyond Tours celebrate every season: Cherry Blossoms and Spring Flowers, Summer Flowers and Nature, bright Autumn Leaves and Sapporo Autumn Fest, and the Hokkaido Winter Festivals. The result is a series of unique itineraries for travelers wanting to discover the majestic beauty of the northern island and then connect to a short tour outside Tokyo.

Our tour starts in Hokkaido, and what you will see and do there will greatly depend on the season you want to travel. All of our tours include the must-sees of Sapporo (such as Odori Park, Susukino, Hill of the Buddha, Shiroi Koibito Park, and Historical Village of Hokkaido) and Otaru (the Otaru Canal, Sakaimachi Street, and the Otaru Sushi District), but select itineraries will connect you to spectacular attractions in Hakodate, Kushiro, Noboribetsu, the Akan-Mashu National Park, Lake Toya, Furano and Biei, Sounkyo, Abashiri, and the UNESCO World Heritage Shiretoko Peninsula. In Winter, we feature four of the incredible Snow Festivals of Hokkaido - the Sapporo Snow Festival, Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival, Sounkyo Ice Fall Festival, and Asahikawa Winter Festival, each with their own winter delights. Spring offers lovely cherry blossoms and local greenery, but summer is the best time to see flowers in Hokkaido, especially in the flower fields of Furano and Biei. Autumn has the beautiful Autumn Leaves in addition to the Sapporo Autumn Fest (a local food festival), and the Chitose Salmon Run. Along the way, we see the natural beauty of the Akan Mashu National Park and Noboribetsu, and learn the history and traditions of the indigenous Ainu people.

From there, we take a short domestic flight to Tokyo to discover what lies beyond the busy metropolis. The itinerary depends on the season, but includes such delights as the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival (the earliest cherry blossoms in Japan), the spring flowers of Ashikaga and Ibaraki, Toshogu Shrine and Kegon Falls in Nikko, the Karuizawa Museum of Contemporary Art, painting your own Daruma Doll in Takasaki’s Daruma Temple, the adorable Snow Monkeys of Yudanaka, and Matsumoto’s Black Crow Castle. Browse each itinerary to compare which attractions you want to see most!

Book one of our Hokkaido and Beyond Tours for a tour that takes you from the far northern island to the regions outside Tokyo. The tours end in Tokyo, which makes it easy to connect to a departure flight or a post-stay tour around the capital. Our Hokkaido and Beyond Tours include deluxe hotel accommodations, meals as listed on the itinerary, transportation facilitated by our comfortable and convenient private coach buses, and assistance from our friendly, professional English-speaking guides. Please browse our Hokkaido and Beyond itineraries for more information.
