Hokkaido Tours

Hokkaido attracts visitors from all over the globe for its pristine natural scenery and snow festivals which are held annually.

Hokkaido is the northernmost island of Japan and is also the home to populations of rare species like the red-crowned crane. Hokkaido is the second largest island of the four main islands but has the least developed land. Because it has been able to maintain much of its natural environment, many types of flowers have been allowed to flourish during the warmer months of the year. There broad colors of seasonal flowers attract many travelers throughout the year. Japanese Cherry Blossoms bloom throughout the country from early March to early May with Hokkaido blooming on the late end of the spectrum. 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, wrapping around the whole hillside that turns into a mass of violet in the peak 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 west of Sapporo. The Otaru Canal is especially scenic during the night, especially during winter when path is lit by lanterns made of snow alongside the canal. The water reflects the lit candles, complementing each other and creating a peaceful scene.
