October is a beautiful time of the year to visit the northern island of Japan. During autumn in Hokkaido, the weather is dry, and the leaves of the trees visually pop in a color explosion of red, orange, and gold. The season also coincides with an amazing feat of nature - the Hokkaido salmon run. This incredible coordinated struggle against the elements is a natural wonder that shouldn't be missed! This Charms of Hokkaido itinerary brings both the splendid autumn leaves and running salmon to delight our guests, along with those unique cultural experiences that you can only find in Hokkaido, with tour stops in Sapporo, Shiraoi, Abashiri, the Shiretoko Peninsula, Sounkyo, Asahikawa, Lake Akan, and the Kushiro Marshlands.

The Uyoro River flows down from a mountainous region above the town of Shiraoi, curving straight through the town before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. Every year, thousands of salmon make the run upstream every year back up to where they were born, drawing pro fishermen and nature lovers alike to watch this incredible sight. And this tour has a number of other natural beauties waiting to be enjoyed - filled with bright autumn colors. Hokkaido is the first place in the country to see the fall foliage, and the Shiretoko Peninsula, Sounkyo, and Kushiro are among the top destinations in the region that offer visitors some of the best scenes of autumn. While exploring this region, you will experience a cruise around the southern coast filled with breathtaking nature scenes and various local wildlife (including the Ezo Red Fox), in addition to gorgeous waterfalls, sparkling as they run over rocky cliffs, like a curtain of white stars.

The history and unique culture of Hokkaido awaits your discovery on a tour designed to engage our guests' interest - when one day finds you on an informative tour of the Upopoy National Ainu Museum in Shiraoi, and the next day, studying Hokkaido's history of pioneering and exploration at the Hokkaido Historical Village in Sapporo. The port city of Otaru beckons visitors to get a taste of Hokkaido seafood with the Otaru Sushi District, while Asahikawa pleases the palate with a range of local comfort food at the Asahikawa Ramen Village.
