Hokkaido Tours

Hokkaido attracts foreign visitors mostly for the natural environment and special snow festivals held annually.

Hokkaido is the northernmost island of Japan, it is also the home to a population of rare species like the red- crowned crane. Hokkaido is known as the second largest island of the four main islands, but it has the least developed land. However, because it has been able to maintain much of its natural environment with its usual cold climate, there are many travelers attracted to the seasonal flowers that flourish during different months of the year. Japanese sakura usually bloom in late March to early April, however, Hokkaido’s climate can have their cherry blossoms open anytime in late April to early May. Another popular Hokkaido flower is the shibazakura, which has a sensational pink color that spreads out like blankets on the ground, causing it to look like a sea of flowers that wave a spectrum of strong pink. In the summer, lavender viewing is one of the top attractions in Hokkaido. Both public and private lavender fields extend along Furano City, unraveling the whole hillside that turns into a mass of violet in the high season from mid-to late July.

For those interested in combining their wanderlust with snow festivals, Sapporo has one of the most popular snow festivals in Japan. The Sapporo snow festival takes places annually during the first week of February. Competitions take place during the beginning of the festivities; ice sculptures, mazes, and other icy creations are built for the public to view. Some artists create historical, architectural, or cultural-based sculptures amongst many other types of themes creating a variety of entertainment for everyone. Besides Sapporo’s snow festival, there are also romantic, picturesque sites like the Otaru Canal located just north of Sapporo. The Otaru Canal was once used to transport goods to their warehouses. The Otaru Canal is especially scenic during the night, even during winter there is a snow light path festival alongside the canal. The water reflects the lit candles, complementing each other and creating a peaceful scene. The Music Box Museum in Otaru is like a house of musical art where lights, music, and the shapes of the music boxes create a sort of wonderland for its visitors. There are various Otaru music boxes with different shapes, forms, and sizes, both traditional and non-traditional figures are also displayed.

Sapporo’s Nijo Market is also worth a visit; see a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, and seafood being prepared and sold to visitors and locals. The produce in Hokkaido is known as one of the freshest in the country. The Observatory at Mt. Okura is the site of the Winter Olympics in 1972, the structure for the ski lift is still standing. The long jump can be viewed from above and below.
