Hokkaido was once considered as a remote wilderness by other natives of Japan and was known as "Ezo" during the feudal times. The land was originally inhabited by the indigenous Ainu people. Today, Hokkaido is the second largest island in Japan and attracts all nature lovers as an immaculate paradise of mountain ranges, lush forests, and breathtakingly beautiful crater lakes. This tour explores Hokkaido during the autumn season, which is distinguished by its cool, pleasant temperatures and its striking scenery of reds and golds. The coolness of the air makes it a fantastic season to hike without getting too tired. Let All Japan Tours guide you on a magnificent journey from Kushiro on Hokkaido’s Eastern Pacific Coast, all the way through to the Shiretoko Peninsula, which stretches out into the Sea of Okhotsk.

Our tour begins in Kushiro, a fishing port famous for some of the best seafood in Japan. You will enjoy a welcome dinner at a Robatayaki restaurant, where fresh fish is grilled on an open grill. We will then visit Hokkaido’s largest marshland area to see the red- crowned crane and continue on towards Lake Akan, where the uniquely spherical Marimo Algae can be seen. Visit the home to the largest remaining Ainu community in Hokkaido, Ainu Kotan Village, where we will be treated to a traditional dance performance. Our journey on this tour will also bring us to Lake Mashu, known as one of the clearest lakes in the world and considered Japan's most beautiful lake. From there, we will move onwards to the Onsen town of Utoro on the Sea of Okhotsk, where we will have the chance to relax in our inn's hot spring baths. If the weather allows, we will also enjoy a boat ride from the Shiretoko Peninsula with an opportunity to catch a glimpse of waterfalls visible only from the sea and the native Hokkaido brown bears. As Shiretoko is the very end of Japan, it remains as a completely remote area of beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife.

Experience marvelous landscapes formed by volcanoes, see untouched nature, and visit UNESCO wetland nature reserves. You will have the opportunity to see bountiful wildlife as we walk through the trails. Try to spot foxes, deer, and numerous species of birds unique to Hokkaido. After each day’s walk, we will relax in onsen hot springs where some baths are located outdoors in order to fully experience the serene natural surroundings. While Hokkaido is a large area to cover and nearly impossible to explore it entirely in one short trip, All Japan Tours includes the highlights and best locations on the island for one epic Hokkaido journey.

Note: this is an intense rated hiking trip with some steady steep ascents and hikes over 4 hours.

Activity Level: Intense
Our Intense tours generally have dedicated days of trail walking, with some days of over four hours and with some ascent and/or descent.

Who is an Intense tour designed for?
- We recommend our Intense tours for anyone who does regular walking or hiking, and is comfortable walking a full day with some climbing and descending.
- If you do not exercise regularly, please practice walking for three to four hours, about three to six months prior to the tour in order to get the most out of your trip.
