Begin the tour flying into Chitose and transferring to Sapporo, to see the sights of Hokkaido's largest city. But first, you will have a day to enjoy the fantastic Sapporo Snow Festival. This delightful festival features incredible snow creations that must be seen to be believed: scale constructions of famous landmarks and larger than life displays of popular characters, and many of them are surprisingly detailed, bringing an atmosphere of enchantment to Odori Park. In addition, there is also an area set aside for beautiful ice sculptures in the Susukino district. Also while in Sapporo, browse fresh produce at Nijo Market, study the architecture of Hokkaido's past at the Historical Village of Hokkaido, learn the history of Japanese beer at the Sapporo Beer Museum, and take in the view of the city skyline from Mount Moiwa. We go from there to Otaru to see the Snow Light Path Festival, where thousands of little lights can be seen in snow lanterns around the city, or from small buoys inside the Otaru Canal. We also try the sushi along Otaru Sushi Street. We go from there to another festival in Sounkyo, stopping in Asahikawa to tour the Otokoyama Brewery and try Asahikawa Ramen. Then we attend the Sounkyo Ice Fall Festival, where you enter an enchanting area where waterfalls are iced over and time itself feels frozen solid. See some of the region's most impressive waterfalls - Ginga (Galaxy) and Ryusei (Shooting Star) Falls. Transfer from there to Abashiri, where you will see it's famous Prison Museum and sail on a partly frozen sea during a Drift Ice Cruise. Then walk in snowshoes over the UNESCO World Heritage Shiretoko Peninsula, and experience it's natural splendor. Go from Shiretoko through the Akan-Mashu National Park, which consists of Lake Akan, Lake Mashu, and Lake Kussharo, where you will go ice fishing for smelt, observe the white whooper swans, and see a traditional Ainu dance. The last few days of the tour, we see the red-crowned cranes of Tsurui, enjoy the food stalls at Obihiro, explore the ice village that sits over frozen Lake Shikaribetsu, and visit a cheese- making factory and winery in Furano, before finally going back to Chitose.
