Hokkaido has long been known for its famous powdery- like snow which draws skiers from around the world. With Hokkaido also hosting several winter festivals, guests of all ages will enjoy this winter journey. Whether you are looking to have some fun in the snow or tour around Japan's northern island, this journey offers it all! Enjoy a guided tour through the popular cities of Sapporo, Otaru, and Noboribetsu, while enjoying a few days in Niseko to ski, sled, or even ride a snow mobile. Let All Japan Tours take care of the planning with this special winter journey.

Upon arrival, visit Shikotsu's annual ice festival before visiting Jigokudani Hell Valley which displays hot steam vents and sulfurous streams. Enjoy your day in Noboribetsu while wearing snowshoes and explore the city on your own. There are also optional crafting activities that guests can enjoy. Ride on the Mt. Usu Ropeway and learn about this volcano at the Volcano Museum. Travel to the Silo Observatory to catch stunning panoramic views of Lake Toya before grabbing delectable gelato at the Lake Hill Farm. Spend the next few days exploring Niseko, one of Japan's most popular places for skiing. With soft, powdery snow covering the ground, there are plenty of activities to participate in, such as sledding and snowmobiling. As home to the largest ski resort in Japan, there are plenty of lessons and facilities offered for all levels of skiers.

Travel to Otaru, first visiting the Otaru canal, then the Tanaka Sake Brewery, where guests will learn about how sake is made. Visit a famous cheesecake factory and the popular Sakaimachi Street, where Otaru's glass workshops and the Otaru Music Box Museum can be found. Enjoy fresh seafood at the Otaru Sushi District before transferring to Sapporo. Stop by Nijo Market and Sapporo's Historic Village before visiting the Sapporo Beer Museum, with its popular beer brewed in Sapporo since 1877. Your next day in Sapporo will be spent exploring the Sapporo Snow Festival. Enjoy the three sites of this festival: Odori Site, Susukino Site and Tsudome Site, each offering a different aspect to the festival.
