Enjoy the summer in Hokkaido and Honshu on our Hokkaido and Beyond: Lavenders and Summer Flowers Tour, which includes visits to Furano, Biei, Sapporo, Otaru, Hakodate, Nikko, Karuizawa, and Yudanaka.

Discover the summer beauties of Hokkaido and Honshu while on our Hokkaido and Beyond: Lavenders and Summer Flowers tour. This 13-day itinerary combines the enchanting summer beauties of Hokkaido together with the delights of regions outside Tokyo – especially Nikko, Karuizawa, and Yudanaka. Particular highlights of this tour include the lavender fields of Furano and Biei, the sunflower maze of Hokuryu, captivating Lake Toya, the Snow Monkeys of Yudanaka, the UNESCO-inscribed sites of Historic Nikko, and picturesque Karuizawa.

The tour begins in Hokkaido, where you will first discover the beauty of Lake Toya, taking in the enchanting beauty of the lake from an airborne gondola on the Mt. Usu Ropeway, before walking the Nishiyama Crater Walking Trail. While in the area, you will also enjoy picking (and tasting) seasonal fruits. In nearby Nanae, we stop at one of Hokkaido’s Road Stations, which sells locally produced souvenirs, before we proceed to Hakodate, on Hokkaido’s southern tip. We visit all of the city’s must-sees including Fort Goryokaku, the Red Brick Warehouses, and Motomachi, and ride the Hakone Ropeway for a delightful evening view. We proceed to Onuma Park, which offers picturesque nature scenes of its two lakes, then hike through the “Hell Valley” of Noboribetsu, and enjoy a natural foot bath at Oyunumagawa. After a brief stop in Shiraoi to learn about the native Ainu people, we reach one of the tour’s main events: the spectacular flower fields of Furano and Biei, which include delightful scenes at Farm Tomita, Panorama Road, Blue Pond, and Shikisai Hill. While in Furano, you can also enjoy an ice cream-making experience. We also include major Hokkaido destinations Sapporo and Otaru, with destinations including Otaru’s Sakaimichi Street, Otaru Canal, and the Sushi District, and Sapporo’s Historic Village of Hokkaido, Asahi Beer Brewery, Odori Park, and Susukino.

For the last leg of the trip, we take a domestic flight to Tokyo, and from there go to discover the sites of historic Nikko, including Toshogu Shrine, Rinnoji Temple, Lake Chuzenji, and Kegon Falls. We stop briefly in the resort town of Karuizawa, to see the splendid Stone Church, and the Karuizawa Museum of Contemporary Art. Finally, we go to Yudanaka to see the curious Japanese Macaques, also called “Snow Monkeys”. Before returning to Tokyo via high-speed express train, we stop at Matsumoto to behold the imposing Matsumoto Castle - one of Japan's 12 original castles, and also called Crow Castle for its jet black exterior.

Enjoy the spectacular beauty and culture of Japan through Hokkaido and Beyond, on our Lavenders and Summer Flowers Tour. Transportation for the tour will use one of our comfortable and convenient private coach buses, and you will be accompanied by a friendly and professional English-speaking guide.
