Join our Hokkaido and Beyond: Sapporo Autumn Fest Tour for a delightful 13-day tour exploring the wonders of Hokkaido and Beyond, with a day sampling delicious Hokkaido foods at Sapporo Autumn Fest.

Our Hokkaido and Beyond: Sapporo Autumn Fest Tour is a 13-day itinerary exploring the beauties of Hokkaido in Autumn before traveling to Honshu to discover the rural areas outside of Tokyo. Discover the natural beauty and local culture of Hokkaido, featuring the Sapporo Autumn Fest, which is one of the region’s largest food festivals - a delectable showcase of Hokkaido cuisine.

The first 8 days of our 13 day tour is an adventure through Hokkaido - top destinations and beautiful countryside. We start from Chitose, traveling to breathtaking Lake Toya. On the way, we stop in Shiraoi to learn the history of the Ainu people and in Noboribetsu to explore the primordial beauty of Jigokudani Hell Valley. On arrival in Lake Toya, we enjoy an evening fireworks show, then spend the next day enjoying the lakeside landscape with a ride on the Mount Usu Ropeway, seasonal fruit picking in a local orchard, and making fresh ice cream at Lake Hill Farm. We browse the local merchandise of Road Station Nanairo-Nanae before traveling to Hakodate for a day of sightseeing - the Morning Market, Fort Goryokaku Park, the Red Brick Warehouses, Motomachi, and Mount Hakodate Ropeway. Then we explore more of Hokkaido’s incredible natural beauty at Onuma Quasi-National Park and the Utasai Virgin Beech Forest, then take time to taste the local cuisine of Hokkaido at Hama no Kasan, join a fun Taiko Drumming lesson in Kuromatsunai, and tour the Nikka Whisky Distillery at Yoichi. The tour continues to Otaru, a beautiful port city known for its fishing industry and glassworks. While there, we admire the beautiful Otaru Canal, visit the Kitaichi Garasukan and Music Box Museum on Sakaimachi Street, and try delectable sushi in the Otaru Sushi District. The Hokkaido portion of the tour finishes in Sapporo, with a tour of all of the prefectural capital’s must-sees: the Historical Village of Hokkaido, Shiroi Koibito Park, Hokkaido Shrine, the Asahi Beer Brewery, and the Hill of the Buddha. The last day in Sapporo is given entirely over to wandering Odori Park during the Sapporo Autumn Fest and discovering the mouthwatering cuisines gathered there.

From there, this Hokkaido and Beyond tour connects to our Beyond Tokyo itinerary with a domestic transfer to Tokyo followed by 4 days exploring Nikko, Takasaki, Karuizawa, Yudanaka (Nagano), and Matsumoto. Along the way, we visit UNESCO World Heritage Toshogu Shrine and Rinnoji Temple, breathtakingly stunning Kegon Falls and Lake Chuzenji, Shorinzan Daruma Temple (including Daruma Doll Painting experience!), the Stone Church and Museum of Contemporary Art in Karuizawa, Yudanaka’s adorable Snow Monkeys, and Matsumoto Castle.

Join our Hokkaido and Beyond: Sapporo Autumn Fest Tour for an unforgettable journey featuring the culture, history, and beauty of Hokkaido and the delicious food of the Sapporo Autumn Fest, then connect a brief tour to Nikko and other historic destinations beyond Tokyo. Transportation for the tour is facilitated by our comfortable and convenient private coaches, with deluxe hotels, meals as listed in the itinerary, and guided assistance by one of our friendly, professional English-speaking tour guides.
