Summer is the best season to visit Hokkaido. It’s the prefecture with the mildest climate in summer. It’s not as hot and humid during the day, and it cools down ever so nicely during the evening making each night all the more enjoyable. Furthermore, Hokkaido offers beautiful nature and flower fields which are best explored during the summer time.

Hokkaido is considered Japan’s last frontier and is home to the indigenous Ainu people. This region includes towering mountain ranges, pristine lakes, volcanoes, vast forests, open pastures, and hot springs (onsen). In the mild summers you’ll see an explosion of color, with over 500 alpine flowers blooming throughout the season. Hokkaido's marshlands become a nursery for many new families such as Goosander and Japanese Crane chicks and female Sika Deer with calves in tow head for the seclusion of coastal marshes.

Lavender has been cultivated in Hokkaido for more than half a century. When the arrival of lower priced, imported lavender led to a decrease in demand for Hokkaido's lavender in the 1960s and 70s, the local lavender's main function shifted from agricultural product to tourist attraction. Nowadays, Hokkaido's lavender fields attract large numbers of visitors to the region every summer. The majority of lavenders start blooming in late June and reach its peak from around mid July to early August.

Another unforgettable view of Hokkaido’s summer is the vivid panorama of yellow sunflower fields. Many other flowers make Hokkkaido an attractive destination outside of the lavender season, as well. The main season for flower viewing takes place between June and September. Flowers include rape blossoms, poppies and lupins from June, lilies from July and sunflowers, salvias and cosmos from August and September.

We will visit Furano, Biei, Sounkyo, Abashiri, Shiretoko, Kushiro, Shiraoi, Noboribetsu, Lake Toya, Otaru and Sapporo. At Shiretoko, we will take a small boat to cruise close to Shiretoko's sheer rocky cliffs and observe colonies of sea birds and Brown Bear. Hokkaido's coastal waters boast some of the best and freshest seafood, including crab, scallop, sea urchin, squid, cod, salmon, shrimp, abalone, surf clam, salmon roe, herring, and kelp. This tour includes most dinners, including traditional Japanese banquets and buffet dinners with all you can eat seafood and giant crab legs.
