This delightful itinerary brings our guests through fields of cheerful summer flowers to explore the incredible nature of Furano, Biei, the Shiretoko Peninsula, and Kushiro on this relaxing Charms of Hokkaido summer tour.

Hokkaido is well-known as Japan's winter wonderland, but in summer the northern island of Japan is synonymous with vistas of beautiful flowers. This 9-day Charms of Hokkaido itinerary brings travelers to the most gorgeous floral scenes - featuring the cheerful sunflower park of Hokuryu Town. Over a million sunflowers stand tall in the fields of this quaint little town waiting to greet the guests of this 9-day Charms of Hokkaido itinerary. In addition, we have included the charming flower fields of Furano and Biei, with further stops in Sapporo, Otaru, Asahikawa, Sounkyo, the Shiretoko Peninsula, Lake Akan, and Kushiro, for a well- rounded summer tour.

The sunflower fields of Hokkaido are an exceptionally pleasing sight, as travelers walk through row upon row of bright yellow orbs waving at them out of a dense grove of green stalks. Though not as famous as the lavenders of Furano, the sunflower village of Hokuryu is definitely worth visiting. We visit Furano and Biei as well, not only for fields of lavender flowers, but to behold bright columns of common sage, lupine, tulips, and Japanese anemone arrayed in a glorious rainbow carpet across Farm Tomita and Shikisai Hill. We include more hands-on experiences in addition to flower-gazing – pick sweet corn in a cornfield in Ashikawa, and learn to make ice cream in Furano.

Discover the awe-inspiring nature of Hokkaido on a special bear-watching cruise in the Shiretoko, and witness the delicate beauty of the Japanese Tancho "red-crowned" crane at the Akan International Crane Center in Kushiro. Learn the history and culture of the Ainu people at the Lake Akan Ainu Kotan and the Upopoy National Ainu Museum. Enjoy the capital city of Sapporo with sightseeing around the city - visiting top locations including the Shiroi Koibito Park, Hill of the Buddha, Historical Village of Hokkaido, and the Asahi Beer Hokkaido Brewery. Then explore the unique local culture of Hokkaido in Otaru with a stroll by the romantic Otaru Canal, old shops and houses on Sakaimachi Street - including a glass workshop and a music box museum. Many more engaging sights and experiences are included, so please take a look at the itinerary below for more detailed information on this Sapporo Summer Flower tour.
